By-the-way Tours, run by Lostwithiel resident Chris Jenord, are building a driver's phone app telling the story of the siege of Lostwithiel during the English Civil War in 1644. 

They are seeking financial support via a Crowdfunder pitch which concludes on 10th June 2021.

There are opportunities for businesses to advertise via the app from £20 per year and for local people to sponsor one of the audio pools or buy a GPS located audio testimonial for someone local.  25% of funds raised go to the Youth Hostel Association's YHA90 fund to provide short breaks for key workers and vulnerable young people after lockdown.
