Project Update

In September 2022 we awarded the contract to Wessex Archaeology and InfoPoint.

The first workshop has been arranged for Friday 28th October at West Stow Country Park and will be hosted by Ian Atkins from Wessex Archaeology and Dan Boys from InfoPoint. Dan will demonstrate the wifi hotspot equipment and Ian will discuss the heritage interpretation content generally and with each partner.

Partners are in the mean time submitting their content and design ideas for interpretation panels and digital content. We are excited to get started!


To transform the quantity and quality of interpretation content available at key sites in the project area

By providing digital interpretation access at remote sites in the BFER project area using stand-alone Wi-Fi transmitters

To enable Digital content to be accessed at BFER engagement events, greatly increasing the resources available to participants and helping to raise awareness of the scheme and wider opportunities for involvement


The project will transform the quantity and quality of interpretation content available at key sites and will be promoted to other scheme partners and heritage providers in the project area through launch events and information sharing opportunities.

This project will provide (at least 5) digital (InfoPoint) visitor interpretation points for remote heritage sites in the projects area. Visitors will be able to connect to these points with smart phones or tablets as if they were browsing the public web, and access or download interpretation content.

The new interpretation provision will include a wide variety of heritage interpretation information including videos, oral histories and audio tours as well as quizzes, games, images and schools’ packs, much of which has previously only been available on a limited basis, or off-site on the internet.
