Experience Kingcombe as you’re never seen or heard it before on a unique interactive journey.
The special environment of this valley has been re-interpreted by ScreenPLAY who invite you to explore the lanes and meadows of this ancient Dorset landscape in a new way.
Guided by stories of people who lived and worked there and the centuries-old folklore of the trees, our interactive journey Rites of Way, uses smartphones to guide you on two routes through the valley.
“It’s has been described as one of those unique places with an atmosphere and quality that is beyond description,” explained project leader Sharon Hayden.
“Kingcombe centre founder Jill Spring describes ‘an energy founded in the land itself and nurtured by the people’ which makes visitors feel feel cared for and inspired. We are trying to evoke some of those feelings on our journey and look at Kingcombe through the eyes of those who lived there.
Rites of Way is being launched in late September 2013 - To take part you will need to preload the pages in your smartphone - either before setting out for Kingcombe or at the centre.

ScreenPLAY creates interactive narratives which create a sense of place and invite participants to become co-creators in their work.
