Interpretation Boards

A major part of the project was the creation and installation of interpretation boards.  Prior to this, visitors to Fowey harbour had very few places where information was available on the history together with general tourist information.

The committee and volunteers all worked on these, finding information, identifying photographs and spending a lot of time carefully proof reading and debating content.  With such a rich heritage selecting what should  be on each board was a real challenge.

The boards are all different and feature old and new pictures to highlight the harbour’s rich history and  to encourage everyone to explore further.
