Explore WiltshireExplore Wiltshire's hidden histories with new heritage app
Visitors and local residents can explore their local history and discover Wiltshire's rich cultural heritage with the launch of a new 'Explore Wiltshire' app.
The new app features information about historical landmarks, cultural sites and significant events that have helped to shape Wiltshire's landscape. The free, easy to use location-aware app, also includes historic photos, engravings and information from the archives of the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre.
The app has initially launched featuring information and trails for Bradford on Avon, Chippenham, Cricklade, Devizes, Salisbury and Warminster, plus a link to the Explore Malmesbury webpage.
It is planned that new trails covering the areas of Marlborough, Pewsey, Tisbury and Trowbridge will follow later in the year.
With interactive maps, walking trails, hunts and challenges; plus photographs, audio and visual clips, people can explore their local area in an exciting way, from anyone wanting to go on a quiet walk on their own to families looking to have a fun, entertaining experience discovering new hidden treasures in our towns.
Explore Wiltshire is available free for download to Apple and Android devices by searching 'Explore Wiltshire' on the Apple App Store: Apple App Store: Explore Wiltshire and Google Play: Google Play: Explore Wiltshire.
