Coniston Copper Mines

Branding / Design / Interpretation

We recently worked with Minerva Heritage to complete a successful Round 2 Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) application for the restoration and interpretation of the Coniston Copper Mines and Penny Rigg area in the Lake District National Park.

This is great news for the site and all the volunteers involved as it means the archaeology can be saved and in turn build an additional attraction for the area, encouraging both tourists and educational visits to find out more about the local heritage.

We developed the site brand, creating a guidelines document to help steer the look and feel as it goes through the Round 3 implementation stage, as well as promotional event materials and visuals for digital elements.

A key part of the plan was visualising the site interpretation which needed to withstand harsh winters and summers, grazing livestock and rock falls! So we chose low-lying interpretation which could be built up and enforced using the local materials to hand.
