In 2006 Lancashire Museums, Friends of Lancaster Maritime Museum, Global Link and Dallas Road County Primary School worked with historical adviser Melinda Elder and artist Sue Flowers. Together they created a town trail exploring some of the buildings made possible by the wealth the Transatlantic Slave Trade and the West Indies Trade brought to Lancaster.
The school also looked at the work of contemporary abolitionists and more modern anti-racist campaigners. The children at Dallas Road produced a series of line drawings of the buildings in the city linked to the Slave Trade. These drawings were used to produce the town trail.
The children also worked with Sue Flowers and Global Link to explore the issue around slavery and to produce a display at the Maritime Museum.
The Lancaster Slave Trade Town Trail was official launched by the Deputy Mayor of Lancaster on the 2nd April 2007 at the Maritime Museum .
