Who we are

We are a husband and wife team who established Audio Trails in 2006. We began by creating downloadable audio guides (no-one had done it before), and now we offer a wide range of high quality interpretation and learning services and solutions that inspire visits to heritage sites.

All the work we plan and implement uses interpretive principles that were first set down by Freeman Tilden (US National Park Service) in 1957, and are still the benchmark today.

I’m passionate about the outdoors and its potential to inspire learning and enjoyment. I produced the first MP3 audio guides in the country, established Audio Trails in 2006 and have since delivered over 150 wide-ranging heritage interpretation projects across the UK. I love walking and mountain biking, visiting museums and heritage sites and getting away with the family in our campervan.

My specialities are: digital interpretation, interpretive planning, community consultation and engagement, story development and scriptwriting, mentoring, project management (Prince2 accredited), oral history, audience development.

I enjoyed the vibrancy and challenge of the primary classroom for over 10 years and worked in a range of schools, embracing many key roles. More recently I spent two years as John Muir Award England Education Manager; supporting people of all backgrounds connect with, enjoy and care for wild places in a spirit of adventure and fun.

My love for history, heritage and education ensures I keep up to date with the educational landscape and make time to enjoy museums and heritage sites, towns and countryside.

I am currently studying for my Masters degree in Heritage and Interpretation at Leicester University.

We are supported by a number of carefully selected associates to help deliver some of our projects.
