Bedford River Valley Park

inHeritage developed and delivered a comprehensive package of heritage interpretation for the newly created Bedford River Valley Park.

We interpreted the archaeological, historical, natural and geological landscape of the park from its formation as glacial gravels to its current use.
We created a series of interpretation panels, QR-code-linked webpages, podcasts, a temporary exhibition, audio listening posts, PDF downloadable trails, children’s activity sheets and a geocache trail. We produced a series of detailed reconstruction drawings and photographed key artefacts.

Each panel includes a shortened weblink, QR code and NFC tag linking the panel to a mobile-friendly webpage with a YouTube video or mp3 audio oral history file expanding on the panel theme. Each media-rich page then links to a text and image based page, which expands on the panel subject.
