Using our Heritage to Shape the Future

Tour The Gower in 3D

Creating a lasting legacy

As part of the Telford 50 legacy programme, Telford & Wrekin Council wanted to create a lasting digital record of some of Telford’s favourite buildings. The Gower has been selected and will be showcased through Telford’s 50th year.

The 50 Buildings Project uses digital scanning by Matterport to create virtual tours of 50 local buildings. As well as being a new online resource for residents, schools, visitors and community organisations, the tours will also help to promote Telford’s heritage, record the condition of buildings and support funding bids.

The results of the public suggestions

As part of the project they asked local residents and organisations to suggest which buildings they felt were iconic in the borough or had special relevance to their communities.
