Visitors to Old Glossop, Derbyshire can now easily discover the important role the village played in the early cotton industry.

Audio Trails were commissioned to produce a responsive website, an audio trail, a family activity sheet, four interpretation panels and a further 15 location-specific mini-interpretation plaques, putting a wealth of information at people’s fingertips.

Visit the project website – www.oldglossoptrail.co.uk – to learn about this fantastic village and download the resources.

Burnley Canal Trail

The Canal & River Trust were impressed with the Montgomery Canal Smartphone Trail project we delivered and commissioned us to create a similar one that helps to communicate the heritage of the Burnley canal in a lively and accessible way to visitors.

Working with Audio Trails has been a great experience. Both Dan and Ruth have listened really carefully to us about the type of trail we want to create and who our target audience are. They’ve created for us a bespoke product that is interactive, informative and fun.

Emma Bartlet – Canal Communities Officer, Canal & River Trust.

The 6 kilometre section of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal through Burnley benefits from a strong 3G mobile signal. The use of small interpretation plaques with links to online digital content has enabled visitors to understand the rich heritage of the canal. Each plaque … Read More »


Montgomery Canal smartphone trail

Posted on July 14th, by admin in Activities, Case Study, QR/NFC, website. Comments Off on Montgomery Canal smartphone trail

The Montgomery Canal brings wildlife right into the centre of Welshpool. We devised a smartphone trail on behalf of the Canal & River Trust (formerly British Waterways) to help the whole family make the most of this exciting waterway.

Ten waymark discs, printed with QR codes and embedded with NFC chips (the same technology used for contactless payment), can be found along the 1 mile stretch of canal. Each waymark links to a mobile optimised webpage with fascinating information, images and audio.

The downloadable PDF activity sheet ensures children are also kept entertained.

“Audio Trails worked  on our trail, with short timescales imposed by funders. They rose to the challenge and provided more in the way of material than we initially asked for – seeing there was an opportunity to offer an illustrated children’s trail too. The project was handled well and to … Read More »
