The small market town of Barnard Castle located in Teesdale, County Durham, England has transformed itself into a heritage destination thanks to local resident Geoff Dixon and the Making Barney Brighter Together Group. The vision to revive Barnard’s Castle high street includes showcasing the area’s rich history with tours, a phone app, and more.  The Barnard Castle Old Photos & Audio Walk is easily accessed on the Tour Buddy Historic Tours App available for download on the App Store and Google Play for free. 

 

The App

There are 50 points of interest included in the app to visit as you walk around the scenic town. The points of interest include stories of the past, videos from the town in 1913, and 21 audio interviews with late historian Alan Wilkinson. The app also includes a total of 250 historic photos most taken over a century ago creating the biggest ‘Spot the Difference’ competition for users. The ‘Then and Now’ contrast is a remarkable sight to see. The walk goes in a circle through the town and along the river and can be started and stopped at any point with the option to activate GPS auto play so the points of interest will automatically open as you enter the area.
