Local Walks

Explore Wiltshire’s hidden histories with new heritage app
You can now explore your local history and discover Wiltshire’s rich cultural heritage with the launch of a new ‘Explore Wiltshire’ app.
The new app features information about historical landmarks, cultural sites and significant events that have helped to shape Wiltshire’s landscape. The free, easy to use location-aware app, also includes historic photos, engravings and information from the archives of the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre.
The app has initially launched featuring information and trails for Bradford on Avon, Chippenham, Cricklade, Devizes, Salisbury and Warminster, plus a link to the Explore Malmesbury webpage. More locations will be added to the app soon. The new app replaces the Salisbury Trails app that launched in 2020.
Phil Harding, from Wessex Archaeology and a popular member of the former Channel 4 Time Team programme, features on the app providing an introduction for each town.
Explore Wiltshire is available free for download to Apple and Android devices by searching ‘Explore Wiltshire’ on the Apple App Store and Google play (see links below)
