Interpretation

Audio Guide for Dragon Hall Norwich
Dragon Hall is a Grade I, 15th century trading hall which was subsequently divided up into several properties - including tenements, pubs, and a rectory - before being restored in 2005-6. 
 
 
Davison Conservation was asked to transform the long and complex story of the building into an entertaining and cohesive narrative which would focus on the life and times of Robert Toppes, the merchant, but also give voice to some of the poorer 19th century occupants.

SQUARE:CODE Super-QR-Codes were sited around the building enabling visitors to use their smart phones to listen to the guide rather than using hand sets. These QR codes can be re-programmed at any time to provide extra facilities such as on-line quizzes and treasure hunts, or personalised features for private hirings.

Option Appraisal for
Stracey Arms Drainage Mill 

This Grade II* mill is owned by the Norfolk Windmills Trust. It is the Trust’s most accessible drainage mill, open to the public throughout the summer season, visited often by holiday makers on hired cruisers. The current interpretation scheme is over ten years old and in need of an update. Davison Conservation was commissioned by the Trust to produce an option appraisal and recommendations for interpretation at the site.

Connecting Threads: Exploring our Footpaths
This pilot project aimed to encourage people to explore the history of the footpaths in their parish. 


Four Norfolk parishes researched footpath names, lost or changed routes, the origins and purpose of their local footpaths, and encouraged others in their communities to recall their personal memories of using parish paths. 

The aim of the project was to raise awareness and enrich knowledge of public rights of way so that local communities would value them and (literally) explore them more, and would be encouraged to engage in monitoring and protecting them

Caroline Davison developed and wrote the successful application to the Heritage Lottery Fund's 'All Our Stories' grant stream for CPRE Norfolk.
