Visitors wishing to find all 26 wolves on the Bury St Edmunds art trail can now have their wishes granted - by an app.

Some will have already seen the Wishing Wolf in Cornhill Walk – but now a special app has been launched to help lead people to the rest of the wolf pack.

ViewRanger, the Cambridge-based outdoor guide, mapping and navigation app, has teamed up with Wolf Trail organisers to create a digital route, helping visitors make the most of the exciting initiative, made possible through Ourburystedmunds and its Town Team partners.

Mark Cordell, chief executive of Ourburystedmunds, said: “We’ve been encouraging people to make a wish when they visit the Wishing Wolf, which children have loved – they have been touching his nose or blowing him a kiss as they wish and I really hope that some of their wishes do come true.

“But if their wish is to find all the wolves on the trail then ViewRanger can grant it for them. It’s great to be partnering with them to add a digital dimension to our trail.

“The Wolf Trail is already a great success with local residents, and we hope that having the trail on ViewRanger will encourage visitors from further afield to come and discover these impressive artworks.”

As well as giving accurate directions, the app provides photographs and information about each wolf and the artist who created it.

The route can be downloaded on the ViewRanger App, which is free to install and can be found on the Apple App Store and on Google Play.

The trail will run until St Edmund’s Day, November 20.
