In 2010, we recorded local people and Northumberland National Park staff talking about the Breamish Valley and produced 40 x 2-minute sound clips and loaded them onto 5, sustainable sound boxes that have been located at strategic points in the valley.
Audio provides a un-intrusive means of delivering interpretation and can be delivered in a number of different ways. Focus group research showed that young adults, an audience under-represented amongst visitors to the National Park like to use apps. Will an app about a beautiful valley in the National Park encourage them to visit? Will other audiences use it too?
