Local Heritage Project: Saint Michael’s Flags

A project to interpret and promote the local heritage of Saint Michael’s Flags (a small public green space in Manchester), working in partnership with the local community. Countryscape was responsible for producing of a 20-page booklet and interactive CD-ROM; a series of outdoor information boards; large format posters; together with facilitating a series of workshops. Content for the booklet and CD was sourced by local residents and edited by Countryscape, including sound clips and movies. The CD also contains an interactive map and timeline of the site, incorporating historic maps from the 1800s to present day. Countryscape has undertaken a parallel project in the Moston Vale area of Manchester.
