Wren's Nest Interpretation

This is some of the work that went into the Wren's Nest Interpretation project in Dudley, West Midlands, UK

Wren's Nest Interpretation
A Geologist's Dream
Wren’s Nest has many stories to tell – its geology, mining heritage and its biodiversity. As such, there are many different visitors to the site with many varied interests, in addition to the local community that use the NNR as a recreational resource.A number of documents have been developed as part of the Heritage Lottery Fund project: Interpretation Strategy, Lifelong Learning Strategy and Audience Development Plan. These documents have identified a series of stories and themes for the NNR, which now need to be brought to life.In developing how these stories should be conveyed, we have identified a number of locations across the site where new physical interpretation is required. These new features will support many other forms of interpretation which are currently being developed – including on-line, printed and audio guides, trained walk leaders and leaflets. On visiting the site we developed a series of linked interpretation items. The site itself is a most impressive geological site and is rich in fossils. What struck us was the way the strata of the fossil mounds were upended.
