This broad project aims to develop a host of onsite and offsite interpretation through media such as audio, self-guided trails and QR codes.
From the incredible natural landscape and its river, to the fascinating history, to the precious range of plant and animal species that inhabit the region – the Darent Valley has an extraordinary story to tell. We want to help tell it to visitors and residents alike, through a new and diverse range of interpretation materials and platforms.
The project will be based on the interpretation strategy developed specifically for the Darent Valley Landscape Partnership Scheme. By using a themed approach, it will provide coherence and consistency across the region – and better engage audiences.
