Broseley Jitties MP3 Trail
Broseley ‘Jitties’, a higgledy-piggledy maze of lanes and cottages on the edge of the town, began life as a squatter community in the early 17th century and has a rich and unusual history.
We were commissioned to plan and deliver an interpretive MP3 trail unveiling these fascinating stories to visitors. The scheme was commissioned by Bridgnorth District Council on behalf of the Broseley Partnership as part of a wider tourism development project. Our work began with the production of an interpretive plan for the ‘Jitties’ that, once approved, was implemented into a trail head panel at the Pipe Museum, a leaflet, a series of interactive ‘swingpost’ waymarkers and an exciting MP3 audio trail. Our research suggested that a range of historic characters be used to tell the story, including an 1810 May Queen, a child at the local Sunday school in 1880, a local historian, and a young lad collecting water from a well in 1920.
