Full audio is now available for both North and South walks - over 30 points of interest with audio descriptions, and links to relevant photos and articles.  You can get some exercise and walk the routes -both around 2 hours / 4 miles - or sit at home and listen to any or all that are of interest. Lead historian Helen Morgan and other local residents are helping out by recording their own narratives to replace some of my initial readings.  Once all those are in, I'll also create some audio/visuals combining photos and audio.  

N.B. Technological limitations mean different devices make it easier / harder to access the clips ; it's not possible to decsribe one way to play them for everybody. On my desktop you click on the headphones and they play automatically.  On my Iphone, you click, then have to click the "down arrow" symbol top right to download and then choose either "view" (?) to play there and then or download for later. Android seems to let you play them by clicking on the headphones, then clicking the "play" button.

To make things easier if you are conducting the whole walk, I have created a full audio file for the two walks - then you only have to download one audio once on to your smartphone, which you can use offline as you walk around.
