Leyland Truck Trail

Leyland Truck Trail
Across Leyland


April 28th 2017 will see the world’s first truck trail come to the market town of Leyland. Thirteen 6-foot replica trucks will become a semi-permanent feature at sites around the town centre for six months, celebrating Leyland’s 100 years of truck manufacturing heritage and inspiring a future generation of engineering capability.

This is the first ever attraction of its kind and offers the perfect mix of going outdoors to explore the market town of Leyland, discovering local engineering heritage and its part in the history of the area, as well as allowing a fantastic educational element to a great day out with various ways to interact with the trucks as visitors make their way around the trail.

Free illustrated maps will be available online and from retailers around the town, allowing visitors to navigate the route, stopping off at each of the thirteen trucks along the way to discover where they fit in to the timeline of truck development. Each unique, fun and colourful truck has been designed by Leyland-based marketing agency, Stone Create

‘The Truck Trail will draw crowds from far and wide – the designs will capture the imagination of children of all ages – even the big kids amongst us!’

All of the trucks have an interactive and educational element to them. From the ‘Military Martian’ to ‘The Comet’ and the ‘T45 Cruiser’ each unique truck will have a description and its part in Leyland’s trucking history incorporated in the design. In addition to this, visitors will be able to collect clues from each truck to enter the Truck Trail online competitions via the Truck Trail website.
