Clevedon Pier – atmospheric and immersive experiences

This Victorian pier was described by Sir John Betjemen as “the most beautiful pier in England” and is the country’s only Grade I listed pier. We are working alongside Querceus Design and The Workhaus to provide an interpretation scheme for the Clevedon Pier and Heritage Trust.

The overall interpretation will cover the history of the pier and the long-running campaign for its restoration, its place within the wider Clevedon area and role in making the town a holiday makers’ destination, and the ecology of the Severn estuary.

Our work will be focused on the new visitor centre in the Toll House at the near end of the pier where we will be maximising the available exhibition space using a combination of ambient soundscapes, audiovisual and themed interactives to give a feel of the life of the pier and surrounding area. An interactive exhibit will also show real time shipping information from the Bristol Channel.

We will be using our database system to manage images from the history of the pier and creating a “Gesture Wall” to create an immersive experience from this archive material.

Visitors will also be able to get a sense of the great storm which had such an impact on the area as the storm is recreated within a small turret, once a spiral staircase, at the side of the Toll House.
