Case study: Raising the Barr

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

In 2012 Walsall Council, in partnership with the owners of Barr Beacon, the Barr Beacon Trust, was awarded £440,900 by the Heritage Lottery Fund for a project called 'Raising The Barr' – the restoration of Barr Beacon's historic features and community pride. The project saw the restoration of the site's heritage features – its landmark war memorial, rare design of flagpole and work on the Joseph Scott tree plantation. The grant was also used to increase the number of activities - to help visitors, schools and colleges make the most of Barr Beacon. Events have included wildlife walks, fun days, a Time Team-style archaeological dig, astronomy events, and the return of services of remembrance. Sanna Wicks presents on the meeting of technology and heritage in this innovative case study.
