MP3: A town ‘steeped in history’ has been brought into the digital era by a new set of audio files available for download from a website.

They were put on to the www.berkhamsted.gov.uk under Audio Trail Walk in the site’s left-hand menu on Tuesday by its Berkhamsted Town Council owners.

Visitors can download a map of a route to follow around the town, as well as audio files that will tell them about the history of sites like Berkhamsted Castle. Listeners can follow a six- or four-mile route

Town warden John Bushby said: “Berkhamsted is a steeped in history and hugely important to UK history. This will help people learn about it.”
