Lagan Valley QR code audio trail
Our first project in Northern Ireland – The Lagan Valley Regional Park Heritage Audio Trail – takes you on a journey among local heritage and wildlife within the heart of Belfast and Lisburn. Following the Lagan towpath this 11 mile stretch of shared pathway follows the route of the Lagan Navigation which is made up of sections of man-made canal and the River Lagan.
The trail takes you back to when the horse drawn barges slowly travelled up and down the Lagan with their cargoes. Hear the stories of a time when the Lagan Navigation was a busy thoroughfare and the canal folk lived and worked along its banks.
Along the Canal towpath you will find 35 numbered audio trail markers. Each one displays a QR code that when scanned with a Smartphone sends an audio file direct to your phone. Each one reveals what life used to be like for the Canal Folk who earned their living on the Lagan Navigation.
The audio trail runs the full length of the Lagan towpath within the Lagan Valley Regional Park (Belfast to Lisburn) and is free to download from the Lagan Valley Regional Park website.
