If you’ve been up on Bidston Hill lately, you might have noticed new posts for the Heritage Trail. Many of the old ones had become rotten and needed replacing. The new hardwood posts are thicker, and should last longer. Over the next week or two, the blue plaques and the QR codes will be mounted on the new posts.
In other news, we are please to announce that the Bidston Hill Heritage Trail is now available on smartphones, via a new app called Geotourist. The Geotourist app is free to download and use, but your network may charge for data. We have posted more information about the Geotourist version of the Bidston Hill Heritage Trail, including how to get the app and how to find the Bidston Hill Heritage Trail within it. We also have an A4 poster to download.
We haven’t forgotten the printed booklet of the Bidston Hill Heritage Trail, which has guided thousands of people around Bidston Hill since it was introduced nearly ten years ago. Stocks of the booklet are now exhausted, and some of the information in it is now out of date. So we’re planning a new edition.
The new edition of the Bidston Hill Heritage Trail booklet will be based on the on-line version, which is more up-to-date. If you’re aware of any errors in the on-line version, or have any constructive comments to improve it, now would be a good time to let us know. If your comment relates to a particular focus point, please leave a comment on the appropriate web page. If your comment relates to the overall trail, then please send a message through our contacts page.
