Tales from the Smugglers' Coast

Johnshaven Heritage Hub are creating an augmented reality installation to make the tales of the village and the area come to life on your phone as you walk round the museum. I'm writing short 'fun' versions of some of the best known stories of the Smugglers Coast . Stories like the last launch of the Johnshaven lifeboat, the fate of Miltonhaven, the tragic story of the poet George Beattie and many more.
