Walkabout West Cornwall was the second of a series of heritage-based apps designed for mobile phones and tablets. It is a collaboration with Penzance’s Penlee House Gallery and Museum, to unlock stories of the past using the gallery's artefacts.
Walkabout West Cornwall takes the museum out into the Cornish landscape and uncovers approximately 5,000 years of local history. The app locates 230 artefacts within West Cornwall and explores fine art, in particular the paintings from the Newlyn School of Art period (1880 - 1930), archaeological finds, historical items, photography and archive film from South West Film & TV Archive. The app guides you on a cultural journey through the Cornish landscape and historical timeline of West Cornwall.
