In October 2021 (or was it?), a mysterious band of time-travelling explorers led by the Powell-Powell sisters landed in Ryde to investigate this town’s wonderful history. They left a trail of clues along their route from landing at the beach and making their way uphill to the High Street. You can uncover their story and some of the discoveries they made by following their journey.
Following in their footsteps, we came to visit Ryde for a week so we could learn more about this great place from local people and local museums. Take a look at the map we made plotting stories from local people and objects in local heritage collections.
Undiscovered Lands Ryde (Our Time Travellers’ Journey)
Undiscovered Ryde (Mapping Local Heritage Stories)
These resources were developed as part of an experimental high street pop-up experience developed by The Earth Museum and partners. Story written by Mr Dan Thompson Studio, and objects provided by the Museum of Ryde and Isle of Wight Heritage Services.
Many thanks to the town of Ryde for their welcome. We hope to be back soon!
