Do you have a smartphone?

We’ve developed a new app to help visitors explore some of Rufford’s hidden history as they walk around the modern day country park.

You’ll need to download the app in an area with a data connection or Wi-Fi, then head to the park to try it out. Even though mobile reception isn’t great in the park, GPS should ensure that as you move around, trigger points will send information to your phone about the history of the park feature you’re approaching. There’s also a Tree Trail to try out later in the summer.

It’s easy to download from:

The Google Play Store for Android phones

The App Store for iPhones
