Accessibility Comments: 

This app presents you with three ways to access information on National Trust properties. The first presetns properties as map pins on a map. This doesn't really work for a non0sigted user.

However, the two other options are fully accessible, as is the information for each property (which is very detailed).

Selecting the 'Local to me' button presents a list of propertes ordered by proximity. The 'All Places' option shows a single list of all National Trust properties, presented in alphabetical order. This option also has a search facility.
