Heart of Teesdale app

A location-aware (iOS & Android) app taking you to the sites that inspired the creative talents of revered artists such as JW Turner and Sir Walter Scott.

The Heart of Teesdale (HoT) Landscape Partnership is a Heritage Lottery funded (HLF) project based in Barnard Castle in Teesdale and hosted by Durham County Council.

Features

Audio Trails was commissioned to develop an app that showcases:

– the cultural heritage of local artists, such as Turner and Cotman, and writers, such as Walter Scott

– modern artistic heritage through HoT’s Teesdale Viewmarkers project -12 modern viewmarkers placed in the landscape, and the rich (sometimes gruesome) history of Barnard Castle.

Testimonial

Audio Trails have been easy to work with, patient and knowledgeable. Dan uses his previous experience to get the best solution for the client and deliver a solution that is fresh, easy to use and stands out in the market. Audio Trails have been patient beyond expectation given the number of delays elsewhere the project had which impacted on the app development.
