Our Picturesque Landscape interpretation

The interpretation scheme for Our Picturesque Landscape in the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley AONB spans 11 miles of UNESCO World Heritage.

Themes included The Picturesque, Travel and Tourism, and Feats of Engineering. Drawing on artifacts, paintings, plans, documentation, quotes, and vast landscape architecture and engineering heritage, the team devised site-specific themed works. Guided by the partnership, we created an attractive suite of bilingual interpretation, supported by our talented specialists across planning, copywriting, design and build, through to final installation.

The Our Picturesque Landscape is a partnership project supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

I have worked with Beth on several projects including Toad Hall and Flamingo Lagoon. It was a real joy working with her every time. She has a very good eye for detail and is great at listening to the needs of a client. Beth is great at what she does, I have learnt a lot from her along the way.

Beth project managed our vision for a pond dipping station at RSPB Loch Lomond, one of Scotland’s most highly designated sites. She created concept visualisations, for translation into technical drawings, bringing the project through planning & delivery. Feedback we’ve received from visitors, RSPB staff and volunteers has been excellent.
