Providing Interpretation for the Great Wold Valley Heritage Trail

The Great Wold Valley Heritage Trail is one of the country's most beautiful and diverse heritage routes. The 11.5 mile trail is full of fascinating history and wildlife which is why Luttons and Weaverthorpe Parish Plan Action Group was keen to install a series of educational interpretation panels to enlighten and educate visitors.

The LEADER and Heritage Lottery Funded trail, which runs along the course of the Gypsey Race stream, is famed for its beautiful backdrops. To harmonise with the natural surroundings of the trail, we produced a series of timber-effect, recycled plastic shelters with interpretation panels; the shelters blend with the natural environment, making them a non-intrusive edition to the visitor's experience and also offer a low maintenance, eco-friendly display solution. (Request a sample) Now the public can learn more about the trail's fascinating heritage and be protected from bad weather whilst doing it.

Having clear and easy to read interpretation is important for enhancing the overall experience and our n-viro™ printed panels offer superior graphic reproduction and clarity of colour (Request a sample). Visitors are now able to fully engage with the content by reading clearly printed text and admiring super crisp images on our high quality interpretation panels.

We are delighted to have enhanced the overall experience for a variety of visitors; now everyone can enjoy learning about the Great Wold Valley's celebrated past, making for a truly memorable day out.

Andy Macdonald, West Lutton's Parish Council Clerk and Project Manager, was thrilled with the shelters and interpretation panels, he said: "the shelters look fabulous and they integrate into the Great Wold Valley well. The information boards have attracted interest and passers-by have been reading them." He added: "I am very pleased with the service Fitzpatrick Woolmer has provided and the end results were excellent."
