About the Walk With Me app.
As part of our Rambles Programme, local poet Anna Maria Murphy, began walking the roads less travelled of Cornwall in 2010, collecting stories and memories from people she meets along the way. Anna then edits and exaggerates the collection, to make an entertaining, and often moving, living landscape rooted in real people and places. In 2013 we released the Perranporth Rambles, a story walk app that relived the stories collected by Anna in a popular North Coast surfing town.
In 2016 we began a series of Cornish residencies called the Heritage Rambles. Working with a local museum and a group of young people in five different locations (Mevagissey, Newquay, Bodmin, Helston and Redruth), Anna and other guest artists, are working to collect and interpret local heritage for residents and visitors to enjoy. This app will include all six story walks as they unfold.
You can listen to the stories ‘rambling’ in the location in GPS mode, or you could choose to experience the stories in the armchair mode in your own home – perhaps when you are planning a trip to Cornwall, or as a memory to share when you return home. Whichever way you choose to play it you will encounter local legends, gossip and a whole lot of laughter along the way.
