Forest of Dean Hidden Heritage app

Posted on July 22nd, by admin in Case Study, Heritage apps, Mapping, Photography/Video. Comments Off on Forest of Dean Hidden Heritage app

The Forest of Dean’s heritage is no longer a fading memory.

Through the power of amazing imagery, the Hidden Heritage of the Dean iOS and Android app reveals the area’s rich industrial past that was in danger of being lost forever.

In 2015 Audio Trails was commissioned by a group of passionate local historians with a life-long love of the area’s gritty past to develop an app. Bob Smith was one of those Foresters,

“As an eight year old I used to wonder around the Forest looking for signs of its mining and rail past. I felt strongly for the last 20 years that our real heritage was being obliterated, hidden and lost in pursuit of the Forest being turned into an adventure park.”

With the help of an interactive 1920s Ordnance Survey map, the GPS-triggered app guides visitors along the Forest of Dean’s ‘Family cycle trail’ – the former Severn and … Read More »

Drefach Felindre Heritage Trail app

Posted on October 27th, by admin in Audio Trails, Case Study, Heritage apps, Mapping, oral history, Tales and musings. Comments Off on Drefach Felindre Heritage Trail app

Dan was amazing to work with, endlessly patient with the delays caused by ourselves, dealing with community led projects is often challenging but he gently led us to our destination. The audio trail app is fantastic, the clips give a real flavour of our heritage, local people are fascinated by it and we hope that in due course visitors will also use the trail to share in our past.

Caroline Roberts, Llangeler Community Council

The picturesque village of Drefach Felindre in the beautiful Teifi valley was once the centre of a thriving woollen industry, earning it the nickname ‘The Huddersfield of Wales’.

This bilingual iOS app allows visitors to immerse themselves in this industry and learn how it differed from its agriculture-dominated hinterland. The app features a beautiful offline map that allows visitors to explore the area even though the mobile network coverage … Read More »



Newcastle Emlyn Heritage Trail

Posted on October 20th, by admin in Case Study, Heritage apps, Tales and musings. Comments Off on Newcastle Emlyn Heritage Trail

Newcastle Emlyn hasn’t always been a pretty little market town. A letter to the Editor of the Western Mail paints a rather sorry picture of life here in the late 19th century.

It has been a pleasure to work with you on our project, you were very helpful and came up with fabulous ideas and the end product is absolutely wonderful and should ensure that people over the world can read and hear about Newcastle Emlyn. A very big thank you for a very professional finish.

Hazel Evans, Newcastle Emlyn Town Council

This GPS-triggered trail focuses upon those darker times; stories that have been painstakingly collected by local historian Ken Jones and brought together in this bilingual app. View lovely archive images of Newcastle Emlyn and listen to Ken reveal gory local stories that include where the last fatal duel in Wales took … Read More »
