Step back in time with us through the Werden's Plan Heritage Conservation District, a journey many have cherished in past Jane's Walks.

This year, we're delving deeper, answering the lingering questions about the streets and homes we've yet to explore.

Consider this “Werden's Plan - Part 2,” an expanded voyage into the heart of Whitby's history.

During this walk, you'll have the opportunity to:

  1. Be led by a host dressed in historical attire, who will breathe life into the stories of heritage homes and the individuals who lived in them
  2. Uncover the untold narratives of these beautiful heritage homes, enriching your understanding of their significance
  3. Appreciate the unique architectural features that set these homes apart, highlighting their importance in our architectural heritage

Join us for a walk that's not just a step through time, but a journey into the stories and structures that define the character of Whitby.

This tour promises new insights, answering the questions that have echoed among participants in previous years, and unveiling the rich tapestry of our shared history.
