I’m delighted as always to be involved in a number of excitingprojects 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.

Jo was a most entertaining and
gracious speaker, who made us
all feel valued. Very professional.
Training workshop participant,
Kielder Viaduct Heritage Project.
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
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.
