Museum Without Walls

Augmented reality is being used to bring historic Ross-on-Wye to life.

Using the Museum Without Walls app on your smartphone, you can view the augmented reality trail including ‘Underhill’, the row of Tudor houses adjacent to the Market House which were demolished in 1862, ‘The Prospect Fountain’, which provided the town with its first water supply, and the ‘Wye Tour Boat’, a tourist boat that would have carried visitors to the Wye Valley down the river to Chepstow in the late 18th century.

The trail has recently been expanded to include the ‘St Mary’s Rood Screen’, part of St Mary’s Church as it might have looked in 1724, ‘High Street 1821’, showing King George IV passing through town in his carriage, ‘The Railway in Ross’, the railway line at Five Ways at the bottom of Brampton Road, and ’The Roxy Cinema’, currently occupied by Clarks’ shoe shop on Broad Street.
