Tot nog geen 100 jaar geleden werkten er veel mensen in en om het bos. De werkzaamheden liepen sterk uiteen. Gezinnen sprokkelden er hun hout of zochten naar bosbessen. Veel gebruik was ook sterk verbonden met de industrie: zo werd er op grote schaal zand gewonnen, eiken geschild voor leerlooisel, grove dennen geteeld voor de mijnbouw.
Deze wandeling duurt ongeveer 1,5 uur en brengt u naar de mooiste plekken van het bos.
Start en einde van de wandeling: parkeerplaats Hettenheuvel aan de N815 tussen Kilder en Zeddam.
Lyt til skøre, sjove, rørende historier fortalt af beboere på Ydre Nørrrebro, gamle som unge. “Jeg er Nørrebro” er lavet af en gruppe drenge og piger fra Boligforeningen AAB Afdeling 58. Nogle har lavet lyd, andre har lavet musik og nogle har taget billeder.
---- Hvordan bruger man “Jeg er Nørrebro” ----
* Tag dine hovedtelefoner på, se på app kortet på din telefon og begynd hvor som helst. Historierne hører til gadehjørner, bygninger og butikker og spilles automatisk når du går forbi
* Stop op hvis du vil høre historien til ende, fortsæt med at gå, hvis du vil skifte til en ny
* Kommer du for hurtigt ud af en historie, kan du gå nogle skridt tilbage og den samler op hvor du slap
---- 28 historier du ikke vidste fandtes ----
* Han er 14 år og midt i en drøm. Siden han som lille var med sin mor i Føtex, har han ønsket at arbejde der, og nu er han i praktik. Han er stolt af at føle sig som en rigtig medarbejder
* Hun var Danmarks første sengekantsskuespillerinde. For nyligt da hun ryddede op, fandt hun en pose med kærestebreve fra før sin mands tid. “Min kære pusserpige”, begynder en af tilbederne sit brev til hende
* Han opsætter paraboler, det er hans job. Op til 10 styks på en dag, så folk kan fange alverdens kanaler. Andre i kvarteret hader parabolerne og går langt for at få dem fjernet. Nogle gik engang så langt som til menneskerettighedsdomstolen.

Carnaby Echoes covers several diverse musical styles from jazz, reggae, rhythm & blues to rock and hip-hop. As you walk around the Carnaby Village, listen to interviews and music, and view pictures relating to key music venues, clothes shops, nightclubs and magazine offices that attracted music fans and sub-cultures to the Carnaby area.
Artist Lucy Harrison explores the little known music heritage, from 1930s jazz clubs such as the Nest and the Florence Mills Social Parlour, to the introduction of Ska to the UK by Count Suckle and Duke Vin at the Roaring Twenties Club in the 1960s. Vibrant plaques on key buildings mark these locations, guiding visitors on a tour through history.
‘Lucy Harrison, an artist who uses places to get to people’s stories, has uncovered a new old Carnaby Village. One that’s still musical, but not so clichéd. One where histories jump, stop-start, fold back on themselves, fast forward, fade and emerge again, louder, stranger, but still connected. One where the stories are unknown, forgotten or never heard.’ Miranda Sawyer
The Carnaby Echoes app is by artist Lucy Harrison and is commissioned by Shaftesbury PLC.

Listen out for Victor Cox (Ian Lavender) and his stepmother Blanche (Anna Farthing), the family who built the cinema, as they reminisce about the cinema’s hey day.
Health and safety warning: whilst outside you may need to cross the road to get a better vantage point, so please do be careful and do use the two pedestrian crossings available.
We recommend that you use headphones with the app, especially outside where it can be quite trafficky.
If you don’t have GPS or should you be unable to physically visit the Curzon, you can still use the manual interface to explore the outside of the building. Likewise, all the QR codes used inside the building (apart from Projection Hero) are also available on the help website for use remotely. However we do recommend you visit in person if at all possible, as the content is optimized to be experienced at the venue.

Kneehigh are from Cornwall and are celebrated internationally as a theatre company committed to creating magical, inventive and entertaining experiences for all.
As part of the Connections Programme, Anna Maria Murphy, local poet and Kneehigh ‘Word Witch’, has been walking the roads less travelled of Cornwall, collecting stories and memories from people she meets along the way. Anna then edits and exaggerates the collection to make an entertaining, and often moving, living landscape rooted in real people and places. This app allows you to listen to dramatisations of stories collected in Perranporth, a small resort town on the North Cornwall Coast with a vibrant history that includes dynamite works, a secret army and knitted swimming costumes.
You can listen to the stories ‘rambling’ in the location where they were collected, or you can choose to experience the walk via the armchair mode in your own home - perhaps whilst you are planning a trip to Cornwall, or as a memory to share when you return home. Whichever way you play it you will encounter local legends, gossip and a good deal of laughter along the way.
