Tintern Abbey Trail Project
This project will develop and install a iBeacon trail around Tintern. Locations, with stories relating to Tintern Abbey, will be identified for a short walking trail outside the Abbey site and into the village; the project will include identification of locations, engaging interpretation, development of an app, installation of iBeacon technology and a bilingual guide leaflet.
The aim of this project is to encourage visitors to stay longer in Tintern, as well as spreading visitor pressure and encouraging visitors to explore (and appreciate and understand) the wider landscape. Tintern Abbey enjoys large visitor numbers and the local economy could benefit more if the visitors explored Tintern and local area.
The total project cost is £24,824 with the RDP Leader contribution being £16,080.
