All in GRP Interpretation Panels

Horden Dene Interpretation

Horden Dene is an area of England on the Durham coast. It was once a colliery here and the beach was (and still is) covered in coal. But since the closure of the mines the coast is regenerating and wildlife that was sitting below the surface is emerging and flourishing. The local community are justly proud of this area and we worked with the community on the sculptural and interpretative outputs for the site.Some extracts from the interpretation panels:

Flanders Moss Interpretation

Flanders Moss is a vast expanse of all things damp and wonderful. From a distance you can make out the perfectly formed domes of peat as they rise gently from their surroundings. Closer up, squelchy mats of sphagnum moss carpet the reserve with their swirling colours, whilst adders and lizards bask in the sunshine. Listen out for the distinctive calls of snipe and stonechat or feel the slight shudder of the peat as it quakes beneath your feet.

Big rock Interpretation and GRP

Maidendale LNR is an 8Ha site of former agricultural land, dating from the 1950’s, which includes some remnants of old hedgerows and clay drainage pipes within the clay soil. Today the site is managed as a local nature reserve situated on the south-eastern edge of Darlington.The site is predominantly rough grassland, with a small pond wetland mosaic and two large fishing ponds. It enjoys at least three disabled access entrances and a network of footpaths.

Bearpark Interpretation Panel and Notice Board

Bearpark Community centre is at the hub of the local village, a red brick building originally built in 1921 as a miners welfare hall. An old pit wheel stands in front of the building, a memorial to the village’s mining history. We were asked to produce two panels exploring the mining history as well as the story of the Scottish King being caught by his reflection as he hid under the bridge here.

The Great Polish Map of Scotland

We have successfully completed the LEADER funded project for Mapa Scotland. This fascinating project involved; community consultation, education and activity plan, interpretation panels – we used a GRP with a ten year guarantee against fading and is in a frameless carrier tray. The panel is mounted onto our own unique ARC lectern in mild steel, interpretative leaflet and a website in English and Polish.
