Sheerness Dockyard Church is one of the UK's most important buildings. Sheerness Dockyard Trust came together to rescue the buidling from neglect and decay, securing a £4.75 Heritage Lottery grant to restore the building and open it up for community use.
We worked with the trustees to effectively position the Trust as 'Putting Sheerness back on the map', reflecting the regeneration role of the initiative inan area of significant social and economic deprivation.
Our brand identity and website are helping galvanise the project and accellerate fundraising.
As part of the project, a complete early nineteenth century model of Sheerness Dockyard will be displayed in the church. It's the largest architectural model in the UK covering 1600 sqaure feet on plan.
We visited the model at its temporary home in storage and carried out a photographic audit, then produced proposals for interpretive display in the church, informing the next phase of the HLF work.
