Houghton Hall Park with new visitor centre

Dartington Deer Park, South Hams, Devon

After a successful tender, Footprint is now handling the delivery of interpretation for the Dartington Hall Trust and their HLF funded Medieval Deer Park project. Working with a number of stakeholders, Footprint is working on number of interpretive elements for this wonderful site beside the River Dart.

Balancing the need to inform and engage an increased numbers of visitors, which is one of the main aims of the project, with the need for sensitive and creative interpretation is a challenge.

Having been awarded the contract we are designing interpretation, orientation signage and information signage for the park.
