Tactile Tour

Visitors were able to handle a number of artefacts and experience different textures, sounds and smells as the toured this Grade II Victorian church. We especially welcomed people who have a sight loss; and it was really interesting for people to wear glasses which simulate a sight loss condition, to raise awareness of the challenges faced every day. 

You can now view photographs of the event in our gallery

We have also taken some of these items "on tour", visiting lunchtime groups at Walthew House.
