My Route publication

From Summer 2015 we will be giving out copies of a new My Route publication which illustrates how the area has changed using a vibrant collection of photographs, written contributions and recollections. If you have a smart phone you will also be able to see buildings ‘pop out of the book’ and watch people talk about their experiences by downloading the My Route app (coming soon!)

If you’d like to put in an advance request for a copy of the publication, please email katy@sampad.org.uk
