Memoryscape trail

posted 3 Oct 2012, 05:20 by Ben Matthews   [ updated 3 Oct 2012, 14:29 ]

In October the Victoria Park Memoryscape was launched. The Memoryscape trail takes you on a historical tour around Victoria Park where you can listen to memories from local park users.

There are a total of 10 tracks. You can download the whole trail or individual tracks to your personal music device and also print off the Memoryscape Trail map from the Victoria Park web site

This map provides a suggested route for the trail, beginning at Crown Gate West and finishing at the Stone Alcoves from the original London Bridge. This route takes around 1½ hours to complete, but if you prefer you can listen to individual tracks or make your own route.

Listen out for the ‘Victoria Park’ song near the end of the trail. This could become our theme tune! Good fun!
