Working with the Canterbury Archaeological Trust, the local community and individuals with a local connection to the Parks I collated information and materials and developed topics and themes to creative an interpretive plan.

I provided this information to 3 interpretation companies which resulted in me commissioning Fitzpatrick Woolmer to design the on-site interpretation panels and create brass rubbing plaques which I linked into an activity trail.

The panel was designed to enhance the visitor experience of the Physic Garden by orientating them to the 8 raised beds, each for a different medicinal purpose relating to parts of the human body.

I worked with pupils from Simon Langton Girl’s School to design and create mosaic panels for each bed, linking into the Roman history of the park.

The Tannery Field panel was designed to reveal the meaning behind the life size Canterbury Bull sculpture and depict the historical connections between St. Mildred’s Tannery and Tannery Field.

I also wrote the content and worked with the internal communications team at Canterbury City Council to produce the Westgate Parks site leaflet
