The team at the Ouse and Adur Rivers Trust have done an amazing job transforming a piece of land at Sompting, West Sussex for community use. A key element was realigning a chalk stream through the meadow. Chalk streams are a rare but very important habitat. Archaeological surveys were part of the overall project.
Having met up with Peter, we explored the site and discussed a number of interpretation solutions. Peter wanted a variety of panels that would be interesting for families while telling the story of the site and celebrating the work of the volunteers.
At the entry we designed a welcome panel in a roofed structure with a noticeboard for posters. By the stream the panel featured colourful wildlife photos. The archeology panels had hand drawn illustrations and a range of questions to help engage the reader.
If you have a similar project please get in touch. We can offer a complete service of research, writing, design and construction or any element as required.
