Modbury Town Heritage Trail (10)

10. Gateway to Old Traine

An ancient gateway, set into the wall opposite Traine House and before Silverwell Park, bears the 1472 Swete family crest. It once opened onto a cobbled path leading to Old Traine, the home of the Lord of the Manor, Guy Swete and was the family home for the Swete family for many generations.

A** Detour to Millennium Meadow through Silverwell Park for a peaceful rest beside the Aylestone Brook.

Continue up the road, to discover the old reservoir on your right.
