Explore Wiltshire's hidden histories with new app

Visitors and local residents can now 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.

As well as Chippenham, the app features information and trails for Bradford on Avon, Cricklade, Devizes, Salisbury and Warminster, plus a link to the Explore Malmesbury webpage. 

New trails and content will be added over the coming months with opportunities for town and parish councils alongside their local communities to contribute content and share their stories. 

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.
