What is it?
This special trail is a unique collaboration between Go Walkeez and the University of East Anglia’s Medieval Parish Churches of Norwich Research Project. Using the rich history uncovered by the UEA’s research team, Go Walkeez has joined forces to design a special kids’ version.
On 10 and 11 September, kids and families can take one of the Go Walkeez dog, together with the app, to go on a special walking trail. Don’t forget the special guide book containing maps and oodles of information about the key church buildings. There is also a very loooong medieval timeline and a perfect length glossary to help you along the way.
How cool is this? Very. It is a very unique and fun way for both kids and adults to get out, explore and learn high quality research information that makes medieval heritage of Norwich awesome (and interesting to discover).Don’t worry, there is also an adults’ trail map too available on the day.

This trail is the result of a unique collaboration between artists, games designers and academics.
Go Walkeez is a community heritage engagement project created by Kazz Morohashi and is supported by the International Foundation for Art and Culture and the Royal Society of the Arts (SDA and Howarth Awards). The app was developed by Impulse Game.
The Go Walkeez Medieval Churches trail is based on the research from The Medieval Parish Churches of Norwich: City, Community and Architecture, a three-year project undertaken by researchers from the University of East Anglia. The project is funded by The Leverhulme Trust and the NRP Translational Fund project.
Dr Kristi Bain, Partnership Coordinator and Cultural Engagement Fellow (UEA) was instrumental in the development of this collaborative trail.
The original Medieval Churches of the Cathedral Quarter trail (adults’ version) was developed by the Medieval Parish Churches of Norwich Research Project (University of East Anglia), an Arts and Humanities Research Council funded project, in partnership with VisitNorwich, the Norwich Business Improvement District and the Norwich Historic Churches Trust.
