We’re using augmented reality (AR) to bring back lost aspects of our town’s past. AR allows us construct digital, animated, three-dimensional representations of buildings and other objects that have been lost to time. Using a smart phone or tablet you can walk around the town and see some of it it as it once was.
Plenty to do
Ross-on-Wye has a rich and fascinating history. Through the millennia the town has seen Roman forts and Anglo Saxon palaces. Viking raids from the river and major battles during the English Civil War all form part of the rich historical tapestry of this beautiful town on the banks of the Wye. Kings, generals, politicians and poets have all played their part, and an exciting new initiative, a ‘Museum without Walls’ is being developed to celebrate the vibrant history of the town using cutting edge technology to bring the past to life for residents and visitors alike.
Continue the journey with us as we develop the scope of this great project.
We now have 7 sites in our museum; we now have funding (August 2023) for five more which will bring the total to 12. Work is underway on the next two (the plague pit in the churchyard and the millpond at Fiveways). Where should we go next, what sites would you like to see in the museum?

CreateROSS was formed in 2016, and is a constituted voluntary community group.
