The Land of Oak and Iron
Winlaton Mill Heritage Centre Design Proposal
Located at Winlaton Mill the new Centre will provide a space for innovative interpretation of the area’s history and heritage as well as a cafe and an delightful environment to experience the atmosphere of he park from.
Influenced by the wheel that was the driving force of the industrial revolution, visitors are able to flow through the Heritage Centre into the heart of the park.
The story of the park is presented through a timeline, illustrating the rich historical context that the Centre sits within. This space is adaptable with mobile exhibition units.
A space for everyone to enjoy. If visitors are just walking through the park or at the Centre for the day, it is a great space to eat whilst admiring the beautiful surrouding views.
The link between inside and outside spaces. The courtyard, facing south, is the ideal place for groups and families to meet during the summer and has a covered walkway for those rainy days.
