Jessie Boucherett and her sister Louisa feature in a new heritage trail around Market Rasen

Lovers of Lincolnshire history now have a wealth of new stories to discover – online and on foot – as the award-winning Market Rasen Heritage Tour and website expands from 14 stops to 20. This has been made possible by the addition of 6 new stories focusing on “Wolds Women of Influence”, taken from an exhibition of the same name which launched in 2018.   Our founder, Jessie Boucherett, and her sister Louisa feature in 2 of the 6 new stories.

The website can be found at, where visitors can explore a vintage map of the town and find the women’s stories by clicking on blue bonnet icons.

Six new plaques have also been placed in and around the town at locations connected to the women, to give a companion walking tour. The plaques all have QR codes linking them to the story pages of the website.
