A special new augmented reality experience is expanding in Ross-on-Wye thanks to the work of volunteers from createROSS.
As part of the virtual ‘Museum without Walls’, createROSS aims to design and deliver a minimum of 12 augmented reality exhibits, with the first already being a popular attraction for locals and visitors. It is called the Lost Fountain and exists digitally on The Prospect.
The second exhibit is Underhill, the narrow streets and houses which surrounded the Market House.
Until 1862 a row of nine Tudor properties stood to the left of the Market House in the space now occupied by the wide road in front of Costa Coffee, WHSmith etc. They were demolished as part of the works carried out under the second Ross Improvement Act (1863) to improve access through the town.
In 2020 you will be able to see these properties once more, where they once stood.
The team were in Ross on Thursday, January 30th looking for the best place to erect the special signs featuring the codes which will provide access to the Museum without Walls.
