The QRpedia code for MonmouthpediA

Monmouthpedia is the first Wikipedia project to cover a whole town i.e. the Welsh town of Monmouth (/ˈmɒnməθ/ MON-məth; Welsh: Trefynwy). The project aims to cover every single notable place, people, artefacts, flora, fauna and other things in Monmouth in as many languages as possible.

Monmouthpedia will use QRpedia codes, a type of bar code a smartphone can read.

We aim to have 1,000 QRpedia codes in Monmouth by April. If you think you can help, contact

We are very keen for local people to be involved however they wish. Computer skills are not important, it’s the interest and the willingness to be involved. If you speak another language it would be a great place to learn new vocabulary.

By the end of April, we want the community in Monmouth to see something that they - and people around the world - helped build. We've created a competition, The Charles Rolls Multilingual Challenge to rewards contributors, they are unique prizes not available anywhere else.

To arrange a session to learn how to edit Wikipedia and uploading images contact there is a scanner available for scanning photographs and documents
