Residents of Stoney Middleton – we would really like to hear your views on what it’s like living in Stoney Middleton.
What makes it special? Which stories do you tell visitors? We have a few questions and it’s an opportunity to get involved in the development of the new visitor centre planned for The Cupola. Please follow this link, thank you from The Cupola.
The new Stoney Middelton Cupola Visitor/Heritage centre is currently being built. The fit-out and content are crucially important to its success and are currently being developed.
Bright White, an industry leading, creative design consultancy specialising in all aspects of interpretation, innovation and experience design, have been engaged to assist in this work. Part of this work involves consultation with the village, including the linked questionnaire.
They are being assisted by Bill Bevan, a respected heritage interpreter, writer, photographer and archaeologist whom the group have worked with before. He will be undertaking a drop-in session at the Moon Inn on Thursday the 13th of January between 6 – 8pm to listen to ideas and answer questions.
Local views and ideas are essential to the centre’s development, and accordingly it would be much appreciated if you could take a few moments to answer the six questions, and hopefully pop into the Moon Inn to see Bill.
The groups previous project, funded by a Heritage Lottery Grant for £30,000 was launched in January 2014 and included the creation of heritage trails, boards and maps, a comprehensive website, a 220-page illustrated book, a professionally produced and presented film, document digitisation, and oral history recordings. The project was hugely successful, winning an AHI award in the ‘Best Volunteer Project’ category.
