A Wandle Wonder Wander
Follow our mixed-reality geolocation-based walk along the river Wandle, channelling the [spirit] medium of your mobile phone to discover the richness of our local heritage along this special waterway.
Wander at your leisure from the southern to the northern edges of the borough, from Merton Abbey Mills to the confluence with the Thames, along a trail of approximately 7.5 km.
As you follow the Wandle, your presence will trigger fragments of sounds, texts, images and floating animations which tell the story of life along the river. These fragments playfully puncture the fabric of time, poking their past into your present.
The Wandle Wonder Wander is designed for all ages. You can dip in and out of this extra-reality at your leisure.
Access the tour and download a trail map from our Facebook page. Here you will find a community of Wandle Wanderers who are sharing their comments and photos of found treasures from along the route.
