About the QR Code Trail Project
The QR Code Trail Project is being developed by the Friends of Foots Cray Meadows so that visitors can learn more about the nature and landmarks they can find there.
Initially you will be able to find 10 QR Code Posts at different sites across the Meadows. By scanning this code with your phone, you will be able to learn more about the history and/or wildlife of that location.
In the first instance, each QR Code Post will cover several nearby landmarks, with the possibility of expanding to have a post per landmark in the future.
We expect to have the QR codes installed on wooden posts, made from naturally fallen trees from the Meadows, in summer 2023.
We will also soon be launching our new website that will host the QR code information (as well as lots of other information about the Meadows). Our new website will continue to use footscraymeadows.org as it’s URL.
The QR Code Trail will have no pre-defined routes, so visitors to the Meadows will be free to explore the sites in any order.
You can find a map of all the planned locations below, or you can download it as a PDF:
- Information Centre, Foots Cray Place, Stable Block
- Foots Cray Lawns, Ancient Sweet Chestnut, Tulip Tree & Lime Avenue
- All Saints Church, Penny-Farthing Bridge, Chestnut Avenue & pond

- Five Arch Bridge, River Cray & the Lake

- St James’ Church, Bridle Trail
