Gloucestershire Black History Map.

Commissioned by Gloucestershire Community Rail Partnership (GCRP), with generous funding from Active Gloucestershire, this celebratory map commemorates the 75th anniversary of the arrival of the Windrush generation in Britain. The map goes beyond historical significance and is designed to encourage individuals to explore the outdoors, adopt healthy habits, and forge connections with their community through active rail travel.

The Black History map serves as a guide to discovering the inextricable link between the people of Africa, Britain, and the Caribbean. Furthermore, it highlights walking routes and active rail and sustainable travel experiences radiating from Gloucestershire's nine railway stations, leading to a series of significant Black History sites. By embarking on these journeys, individuals not only gain knowledge and appreciation of the past but also actively promote physical well-being and unity in their communities.
