Volunteering 23 September 2019
Hidden Heritage is coming to life at Kinneil
Volunteers have been working on an exciting project uncovering the heritage at Kinneil Estate which isn’t easy for the casual visitor to see or understand. They have developed five new interpretation boards for the site with info on aspects of the history of the site for visitor to enjoy. The volunteers would love to get feedback from you, the visiting public, on their work so far before the boards go into production. You can help make the outputs of the project even better by reading the information below and looking at the map/ draft text and letting us know your thoughts by responding to this very short survey
Please let the group know:
1. What you think of the locations for the boards?
2. Is the information interesting and easy for a family audience to understand?
3. Do you like the design the volunteers have developed?
4. Would the Hidden Heritage Trail make you more likely to visit Kinneil Estate and/or more likely to recommend it to other people?
The information below shows the text for each panel, the design for the panels, and a map showing the proposed locations. Please look at these before logging on to the survey.
The Hidden Heritage project has been made possible due to generous support from Kelvin and Forth Valley LEADER and Tesco Bags of Help grants and is a volunteer led initiative co-ordinated by Falkirk Community Trust and the Friends of Kinneil
This stage of the project aims to increase understanding of the rich history of the site through better interpretation of the unique heritage features which can go unnoticed. The second stage of the project will focus on developing an activity trail based on the Heritage for children to enjoy. The volunteer group would be delighted to have new members join and you can express an interest in the project by contacting email@example.com using the phrase Hidden Heritage in the e-mail title.
Between 1pm and 3pm on the 21st September the Hidden Heritage volunteers will be in the Kinneil Museum with some printed information about the project and will be delighted to chat to anyone who is interested.
