Wheeldon Trees Cottages - New Dimension For Derbyshire Visitors

New dimension for Derbyshire visitors

Visitors to Derbyshire can add a whole new dimension to their Peak District experience with the innovative augmented reality app, GeoStories.

For a limited period, you can embark on a captivating journey through time as you explore the charming village of Eyam, just a short drive away. GeoStories has recently launched two brand new experiences – ‘The Great Mortality’ and ‘A Love Apart’ – that will transport you back to the heart of the 1665 plague outbreak.

These immersive audio dramas, enhanced by captivating visuals and augmented reality, bring Eyam’s history to life. Uncover the courage and resilience of its villagers as you navigate the challenges they faced during this dark period.

A modern connection to a historic tale

The themes explored in ‘The Great Mortality’ and ‘A Love Apart’ – love, loss, survival, and separation – resonate deeply with our own recent experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic.  These stories offer a unique perspective, drawing parallels between the struggles of the past and the present.

Love in a time of plague

While exploring Eyam, delve deeper into the emotional impact of isolation with ‘Love In A Pandemic’. This special exhibition at Eyam Church showcases real-life stories submitted by the public, capturing the power of love and resilience during the COVID-19 lockdowns.

Experience history at your fingertips

The GeoStories app is completely free to download from the App Store or Google Play.  You can choose to explore the stories from the comfort of your cottage. Alternatively embark on a captivating adventure through the village itself. As you walk the very streets where these historical events unfolded, the app’s GPS technology will automatically trigger each chapter of the stories, creating a truly immersive experience.

‘Love In A Pandemic’ exhibition is on display at Eyam Church until April 12th.
