In a quiet corner of Kent some residents are returning to the woodland after more than a thousand years absence – the bison. Standing up to 7ft high at the shoulder they are the heaviest living wild animals in Europe but apparently quite gentle! They are considered expert ecosystem engineers and should promote biodiversity through their activities.
In addition to this Longhorn cattle, Exmoor ponies and Iron-Age pigs will join them to help create a lush and thriving woodland system – naturally. This has been a huge visionary project run expertly by Kent Wildlife Trust while navigating many hurdles along the way.
Landmark tendered for this project and were delighted to be successful, and it was a privilege to work with the dedicated KWT staff to create a memorable stand-out destination. The key feature of this signage is the combination of wany-edge timber, with dramatic engravings of the new residents and the pin-sharp graphics of the HardRok panels.
Display signs, monoliths, fingerposts, waymarker posts, listening posts, cycle stands and a sign shelter have all been used, along with sturdy benches to enjoy the peace and quiet of this forest haven.
Every detail of the signage was pored over by our design studio to ensure that it should ‘blend in while standing out’ – a knack that only comes with long experience of graphics, materials, structures and orientations.
We hope you get the chance to visit Wilder Blean yourself soon and see this bold rewilding project in progress.
Hothorpe Hall is aptly described as a grand Georgian country manor house. It has to be the perfect destination for special occasions being centrally located and having either the beautiful house for the venue or a stunning woodland setting.
Polehanger Farm is an example of how carefully managed diversification can create new opportunities for farmers, and for those wishing to get away from it all.
Windsor is…well everyone knows what Windsor is. The number of visitors here is just staggering, the Castle welcomes nearly 1.5 million per year but the Great Park has over 3 times as many at an unbelievable 5.4 million! And of course many more come just to enjoy the royal connections, attractive shopping and eating areas, Eton College and the River Thames.
Your project is our project, the Landmark team is waiting to hear from you…
