I’m delighted as always to be involved in a number of exciting projects with creative colleagues and enthusiastic clients.


I am currently preparing content for new interpretation at Brompton Cemetery in West London for The Royal Parks and the Friends of Brompton Cemetery, based on the detailed story plan I wrote for the site in January 2017. The site has undergone a major restoration programme with the help of HLF and others.

St Cuthbert's Church here in Elsdon is one of the 18 churches being supported by the Inspired Futures project

Jo was a most entertaining and

gracious speaker, who made us

all feel valued. Very professional.

Carolyn and I also worked together recently for the friendly folk at Newcastle’s historic Mining Institute. We prepared an engaging interpretation plan for the building and its amazing engineering archive, to support the site’s successful HLF Stage II submission.



It’s also been great fun this summer exploring the forests around Aberdeen with Rob Robinson. We’re preparing a Visitor Experience Plan for four woodlands for Forestry Commission Scotland, which has included using the results of on- and off-site visitor surveys and our site audits to determine priorities for the future.
















The visionary Inspired Futures project has been awarded HLF Stage II  funding, so we are continuing to help 18 North East churches to find sustainable solutions for their buildings. I am delivering workshops on activity planning and developing interpretive projects as well as working with the individual churches.

It’s great to be working with Aaron Lawton at Brompton, who prepared the interpretation plan for the cemetery. He is passionate about great interpretation and enjoys debating the issues and opportunities over coffee and cake. Perfect!


I am very pleased to be working with Carolyn Lloyd Brown again too (also a coffee and cake fan) at spectacular Blackburn Cathedral. I have been helping Carolyn prepare an Activity Plan for the building, to support the team’s major HLF Stage II funding application. The proposals include redevelopment of the crypt.
