MOBILE phone users will be able to tap into Huddersfield's hidden history.
As part of an ambitious heritage project, certain important locations will be ``tagged" so mobile phone users can access text, sound files and even photos.
Archives reached by phone will show how urban locations have changed over the years.
Fields, farms, cinemas and churches now lie beneath tonnes of concrete to form Huddersfield's modern townscape.
People can find out about sites of interest, such as the former ABC Cinema in Market Street in the town centre, which is now occupied by a parade of shops. The cinema played host to the legendary Beatles in November, 1963.
People will also be able to find out about Cambridge Road Baths, off St John's Road, which is now a car park.
Centrifugal Forces, the Huddersfield organisation behind the Surface Patterns project, has just been awarded a £5,000 National Lottery Awards For All grant.
Using the cash, the group will mark locations up with signs giving visitors a number they can text to download the information.
People will also be able to add to the digital memory banks with their own stories.
It is hoped that anyone with a mobile phone will learn about local history, take part in mapping out their own history and achieve a greater understanding of their heritage.
Lisa Roberts, of Centrifugal Forces, said: "It's to preserve the importance of buildings or sites, irrespective of what they have been changed into, whether they are now a carpet warehouse or supermarket."
Surface Patterns follows on from Centrifugal Forces' City Poems project, now running in Leeds.
There, people can download poems at places of interest. They can also submit their own verses.
Ms Roberts added: "Information is in specialist books or local libraries. This is about throwing all that information open."
