Emersons Green Audio Tour

Back to News & Events

This summer, families can re-discover what’s on their doorsteps with a free guided audio tour covering Emersons Green, Mangotsfield, and the surrounding areas. The 3.7-mile route covers 14 points of interest, celebrating local mining heritage, chocolate production, giant earth sculptures, supercomputers and more.

Between 1st July and 30th September, starting outside Emersons Green Library, the 90-minute circular route is brought alive through audio by scanning QR codes to hear commentary and interviews. The Emersons Green Audio Tour aims to get families out exercising this summer and to learn a little more about what is walked past every day. The walking route covers Emersons Green Park, Mangotsfield, Rodway Common, Mangotsfield Station, Pomphrey Hill, The Dramway and Cycle Path.

With support from South Gloucestershire and Emersons Green Councils, the Emersons Green Audio Tour has been produced locally by 15-year-old Winterbourne Academy media and business student Lenni Langreiter as part of the Duke of Edinburgh Award in Volunteering.

Lenni Langreiter, Local Volunteer for the Duke of Edinburgh Award, said: “It’s my second year of the Duke of Edinburgh Award. It was a challenge to find a six-month volunteering placement, so with the support of Emersons Green Town Council and local history groups, we created our own unique project. I’m so grateful for everyone’s help.”

To take part, look out for the green and orange signs placed along the route. or for maps and more information visit: emersonsgreenaudiotour.com
