Client: Pluckley Church Council
Pluckley in Kent is famous for hauntings and HE Bates, but there is much more to this beautiful village! The displays in the new church heritage centre tell the story of the parish from the Bronze Age to WW2. They also explore how the church interior has been altered by factors like the kind of music played there, and explain the mystery of the arched windows seen in so many local buildings…
The Church Council were creating a new heritage centre in one part of the Parish church and commissioned us to edit, design and manufacture permanent display panels.
What we did:
First we worked closely with the client to develop a structure for the exhibition. We then developed solutions to a number of technical challenges and produced designs in 5 different formats, to fit the wall spaces available in the church. We carried out picture research and commissioned reconstruction images from a specialist illustrator to show how the church used to look. Panels were manufactured in dibond aluminium and some were mounted in locally sourced oak frames.
These isometric view reconstructions were specially commissioned for the project
