Tring Heritage Trail App and Education Pack

As part of Tring 700 initiative – celebrating the heritage of 700 years of Tring as a market town – Tring Together wanted to create a Heritage Trail that introduces visitors to sites of historical interest around the town.

Audio Trails were commissioned to create an HLF-funded location-aware app for iOS and Android, and an education pack. Both the app and education pack contain information and fun activity points along the trails. The app includes our fun SUPERimpose feature – allowing you to take photos that match historic archive photos – creating your own ‘Then & Now’ collection.

The education pack can be used on its own or to complement the Tring app.  The pack supports curriculum planning and activity suggestions are relevant to a range of learning outcomes in Key Stage 1 and 2.

Audio Trails were chosen for the project because of their experience with trails and their existing infrastructure. We were novices in developing an app and we found the guidance from the team very helpful.

The team also helped us think through the best features that could be used and suggested the development of an Education Pack, that was very appropriate to our goals.

We were delighted with the end result – users are enjoying the structure, facilities and especially the SUPERimpose feature.  The Education Pack has been well received by teachers and pupils alike and together with the app creates a great learning experience for children.
