Walking App puts on the Pounds

Walking App puts on the Pounds

Situated on the edge of The Chilterns, The Crown, Ley Hill, is popular with walkers. Keen to attract more, Rob Deller-Hoy signed up for ThePubWalk app and is delighted by the increased numbers of groups frequenting the pub. The app’s £250 annual subscription includes the pub’s details, picture and website link. 5000 walkers have downloaded the app, which has over 100 walks. Rob said: “We get walking group bookings on a weekly basis now and repeat business from individuals. 17 walkers are coming in tomorrow. It’s great as the walks start and end at The Crown, and 9 out of 10 walkers visit at lunchtime. The app is simple to use, which is important as some walkers are older and less tech savvy. It also operates with GPS alongside fully offline maps, which is good as the signal is patchy here.”
