Come and Poke around…
Unless you have been living on a desert island or a cave over the past few weeks, it’s likely that you are aware of the phenomenon that is Pokemon Go.
The cute creatures have been around since the ’90s in one form or another, but have received a massive resurgence in popularity since the release of the augmented reality game. Players use their smartphone to interact with the free-to-play game, which integrates with real world locations, and that’s where the connection with heritage properties comes in.
The Weaver’s House is right next to a Pokestop.
Pokestops and Pokemon Gyms are generally located at real world places of interest, which means that they are easy for players to access. Many people are discovering interesting features of their neighbourhood through playing the game and visiting places they wouldn’t usually go. BBC – Pokemon Go: Churches encouraged to welcome visiting players.
If you are already on a mission to catch ’em all, why not pop by on an Open Day. You can visit the Pokestop next door and explore The Weaver’s House too. Will you find a Lapras by the loom, or a Goldeen in the garden? Or perhaps a Charmander with your coffee and cake – our tearoom is ready for action on Open Days for some real life refuelling!
Don’t forget this September we’ll be open for TWO days for Heritage Open Days, along with lots more brilliant local attractions.
