Accessible heritage sites for all


Heritage Ability will tackle the following areas to improve accessibility:

  • Improvements for limited mobility - mainly by providing all-terrain mobility scooters at sites.  These will be integrated into LOD's existing Countryside Mobility Scheme.
  • Films for British Sign Language (BSL) users - filmed by Deaf volunteers and available at the sites on tablets, or downloadable on your own smartphone or tablet before you visit
  • Tours for BSL users - led by Deaf volunteers who have been trained in the site's heritage
  • Sub-titles for hard of hearing on videos 
  • Large-print versions of literature
  • Easy read versions of literature
  • Improvements for people with autism, especially by providing a Visual Story on websites

This isn't an exhaustive list and we'll be developing new approaches as we go.
