As part of the Ex-Warner Project, we created an mobile phone and tablet walking tour app. The free app, is available for both iPhone and Android phones. It includes three different walking tours around the former Warner estates in Walthamstow and Leyton. The walks are based on walks given by Walthamstow Historical Society and Leyton & Leytonstone Historical Society. Each walk is around 2 miles long, with about 11 stops. At each stop there are archive photos, contributed by local families as well as Vestry House Museum, audio with historical information and ephemera. There are also links to some of the many oral histories we’ve conducted as part of the project.
You can participate in the walks from home if you’re unable to make it to the locations.
The app has been produced by Lucy Harrison and Katherine Green, with the input of a team of volunteers and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). The project as a whole has also received funding from Arts Council England and the Stow Brothers Estate Agents.
