You can now discover the Wilshire White Horses through nine new apps that have recently launched. The free app allows the listener to explore the White Horses with sonic artists and historians: as you walk a series of rich soundscapes and expert comments are triggered by GPS, there’s even an ‘armchair’ version too.

The sound parks were created as part of Walking the Wessex White Horses, developing the work Ali Pretty and Richard White started in Wiltshire in 2013. The sounds were contributed by sonic artists from all over the world with additional contributions from walkers and historians, David Dawson and Brian Edwards. Ali’s escape maps were originally painted on silk, referencing the secret escape maps used by the military in the past. Here they tell a story of the land and the experience of walking through it on an epic 100 mile journey. There are 9 white horses on the North Wessex Downs each with a sound park app: Alton Barnes, Broad Town, Cherhill, Devizes, Hackpen, Marlborough, Pewsey, Westbury and Uffington, visit them all and collect the set.

The apps will be officially launched on Tuesday 17 February at the Wiltshire Museum in Devizes with some weekend walks planned for the weekend before on 14 and 15 February.
