Walk with Me and Kneehigh

kneehight are delighted to tell you their new, free app, Walk with Me, is now live. Featuring stories collected across Cornwall, it’s a lovely way to explore the sights and sounds of this amazing county in a unique way. They hope you love it as much as they do!

They’re keen to share this with as many people as possible – local people and visitors alike – and hope you can help spread the word. In addition to the app, some of the stories have been brought to life in short animations by local artists and they’ve just released the first of these on their website. Feel free to share, or host on your website too. Keep an eye on our Instagram (WeAreKneehigh) as we release new images inspired by the stories every day this week.
