Wyre Forest Heritage Trail

Bring history alive and take a trip around the district’s towns using the brand-new app.

Add a whole new dimension to your visit to Bewdley, Kidderminster and Stourport-on-Severn by tapping into the lives of memorable Wyre Forest characters from yesteryear.

Accessed by an App on your smart phone, you can visit GPS location checkpoints to hear stories and see the lives of local characters, who will appear in-situ on your device thanks to the latest augmented reality technology.

Meet the ‘Kid from Kiddie’, Bewdley’s signalman Matt Morgan, Rowland Hill the Time Travelling Postman, Canal Builder James Brindley and many more fascinating characters as they spring to life in front of your eyes.
