Woodland Trust

Skipton Castle Woods app

We have created several apps for the Woodland Trust. Each app includes a walking trail with an audio commentary. The apps contain interesting facts about the route as well as detailed information about the wildlife that you can look out for in the woods. 

Points of interest are triggered using GPS. Bluetooth beacons are also used, because in places the dense tree cover makes GPS unreliable.

Fingle Woods

Fingle Woods is an ancient woodland site located in the Teign Valley on the northern fringes of Dartmoor National Park in Devon. It is a partnership between the Woodland Trust and National Trust. The app includes information about the Fingle Woods – its history and restoration, its plants and trees, as well as the wide range of wildlife you might encounter.
The app also includes a Mindfulness or “Forest Bathing” trail. The trail is a little over a mile long and should take about an hour if it’s done slowly. The aim isn’t to get somewhere, it’s to slow down, unwind and apreciate nature.
