Heritage Audio Tour

Though buildings, monuments, public art are important elements of our local history, heritage is fundamentally about the people. To animate the heritage panorama local people have been sharing stories/histories connected to a particular piece of heritage in the borough past and present. This element of the project is an ongoing process and over the years more audio will be added. You can listen to the full audio tour here via the soundcloud app and here via spotify. Both apps it is free and easy to sign up, and you can download the app onto your mobile if you wish. Alternatively you can listen to each audio piece individually below. 

The idea is you can listen to the audio tour while viewing the screen or use it to explore the borough finding the pieces of heritage which still exist. We hope the screen and the tour will not just be a way to celebrate our past and present pieces of heritage but also inspire others to learn about the towns unique history. If you have a connection to a particular piece of heritage below, please do get in touch via radionproject@gmail.com as we would love to chat about it with you.
