National Trust Dunster Castle

Dunster Castle sits very impressively on a hill on the north Somerset coast. Over its long history it has encountered the many problems of conservation that affect all old properties, so the team there asked us to come up with some interpretation to explain the issues to visitors.

We created some information cards, an exhibition identity and a series of touch panels. On these panels you can touch the uncovered areas of the items, but not the bits under the protective cover. Over time the deterioration from physical contact will begin to show.
