Story Trail | Online

Experience the Story Trail from wherever you are in the world.

Story episode delivered via augmented realityTravel to Manchester’s waterways and historic buildings via episodes of Tales from the Towpath. Discover hidden, lost and imagined lives of the city. New mythologies are created and, whether you believe them or not, thrive.

Lives intersect like flotsam, like the past that washes up again and again. Two futures are possible: one where water is at risk and the world turns upside down, or one where nature proves her power.

For the full digital experience you will need to download Zappar and Geocaching apps to your mobile device, wear headphones and view the map below in a desktop browser.
