A Wandle Wonder Wander

Welcome to A Wandle Wonder Wander, XAP's augmented reality walk made especially for Wandsworth Arts Fringe.

Wander at your leisure along the banks of the river Wandle, using your mobile device to summon up sights, sounds and animated artworks, which reveal the wonder of the Wandle’s rich heritage.

There are over 80 'wonders' to discover along this 7.5 km route from Merton Abbey Mills to the Thames. Enjoy the walk in a day, or dip in and out of the route at your leisure.

The Wandle Wonder Wander is designed for all ages and will be available throughout the festival. The route goes live/comes alive from June 25th.

To access the augmented reality walk, and download a trail map, visit our website - xartsprojects.org/wandle-wonder-wander or our Facebook page - FB/XArtsProjects.

On Facebook you'll find a community of Wandle Wanderers who are sharing their comments and photos of found treasures along the route.

A Wandle Wonder Wander is a collaborative project by XAP artists, continuing our fascination with rivers, particularly urban waterways that have been lost and refound. The walk explores change, renewal, loss and quiet resilience along this special waterway.
