Overlooking the Wye Panels

Client > Wye Valley AONB

We worked closely with the Overlooking the Wye and Wye Valley AONB teams over two years on this project which involved 40 sites. The aim of the scheme was to improve and promote enjoyment and understanding of the historic environment in the landscape of the lower Wye Valley.

This part of the project was to design 31 information panels to be sited along the river Wye promoting the fascinating and varied history and heritage in the Wye Valley AONB and publicise the work that was undertaken as part of the Scheme to conserve and enhance over forty heritage sites in the area.

As one of the earliest areas in Britain to industrialise, the Wye Valley was at the cutting edge of Britain’s industrial development some two hundred years before the Industrial Revolution. Each panel explores different elements of the area’s history and help people understand and enjoy this historic landscape.
