Minehead Metalheads Trail Map – The Inspiration
The Minehead Metalheads Trail Map was launched on the 12th of August 2021 to thrill and excite children of all ages while walking around Minehead.
The Metalheads were created by local craftsman Steven Heard. He started to produce these individually designed creations out of scrap metal during the Covid pandemic. Since then, he has created almost 200 metalheads, many of which you can spot in and around Minehead.
Have you ever wondered whose idea it was to create the maps and where the inspiration came from? If so, read on.
Local resident, Sharon Hill put a post out on Minehead Conversation Facebook page and was inspired by the response.
Sharon received 178 likes and 39 positive responses - and so began the making of the trail maps. Minehead BID (Business Improvement District) helped Sharon turn the idea into a reality and Ian from ISOK Design let his artistic ideas flow to produce a leaflet worthy of the Metalhead maps Sharon produced.
Pick up your copy of the Minehead Metalheads Trail map from the Minehead Information Centre at The Beach Hotel and other businesses throughout the town displaying the trail map poster in their windows.
