Dunham Massey

Dunham Massey is a magnificent, Georgian house set within a 300-acre deer park and home to the largest 'winter garden' in Britain. Countryscape has worked with the team at Dunham Massey since 2009, providing a range of signage, interpretation and publications to help visitors get the most out of their time at the estate. This work has included:

  • Developing a new estate map, enabling visitors to find their way around the estate with ease and pick out features of interest they may wish to explore. The map was designed using a clear cartographic style and has been very well received by visitors. It is now regarded as an example of “good practice” in designing estate maps within the National Trust.
  • Producing a wide variety of signage and interpretive displays, for both indoor and outdoor use. Examples include exhibitions, event banners and on-site interpretation of the estate’s history and wildlife, as well as simple informative displays, providing details of the estate’s opening times, admission fees and so on. The production of interpretive materials has involved running workshops and focus groups with both visitors and National Trust staff.
  • Design and print of publications, such as a Garden Guide, Plant Guide, event invitations, trail leaflets and more. The various publications have been produced in accordance with the National Trust brand guidelines, while also remaining unique to the Dunham Massey estate.
