Timeline illustrating Brodsworth at home and at war

Brodsworth Hall in Time of War is an exhibition that forms a trail through the house and gardens at Brodsworth Hall, near Doncaster.

It tells the story of the Grant Daltons and the local community during the two World Wars. Brodsworth Hall was requisitioned during WW2, and the family lived alongside the soldiers, who even invited the family to lunch in their own dining room!

The exhibition is spread throughout the Hall, and incorporates panels, a large full-wall canvas, a graphic timeline and audio stands. Visitors are encouraged to leave their own stories at feedback stations. This information will be archived by English Heritage and will feed into future interpretation.

We also designed a branded A3 concertina-folded trail leaflet to accompany the exhibition.
