Netherton Anchor Interpretation

Netherton Anchor Interpretation

In 2015 CFP was approached to take forward an exciting piece of work. Dudley council wanted to create interpretation for the replica of the Titanic Anchor which is located in Netherton.

The brief was to find a way of telling two stories, firstly the story of the creation of the original anchor in 1911 and secondly the story of the replica anchor in 2010.

We decided to take a creative approach rather than the traditional lecterns and teamed up with Steve Roberts of Footprint Interpretation Design, Luke Perry of Industrial Heritage Stronghold and Alastair Smith, one of CFP’s regular associates and who brought his specialist editing skills to the project.

Luke came up with the idea of creating two capstans and placing the interpretation on top of them. We worked with Steve to produce the content and had this cast and etched into two circular pieces to sit on top of the capstans.

This is an example of how we work collaboratively to offer unique services and products to our clients.
