Severn Valley Country Park visitor centre

Severn Valley Country Park visitor centre was a full interpretation design and build project. Exhibits included welcome area with magnetic map, new leaflets, an animation and waymarking signage. Further exhibits revealed a heritage timeline wall interpreting the Geopark and mining stories, seasonal wildlife and oral history interpretation.

Within the café, theming was addressed with signage and key stories embedded into tables. There was an indoor kids’ activity area with games, which encouraged interpretive nature play. In summary, interpretation was fully designed from concept to completion including installation supervision.

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.
