Marcon Heritage / Whitby Abbey

Whitby Abbey

Marcon has finished its first project with  English Heritage completing the site-wide interpretation scheme at Whitby Abbey, the iconic landmark located on the headland at Whitby in North Yorkshire.

Whitby Abbey is a site of national and international importance and its history is evidenced through the upstanding 13th century medieval ruins, its buried archaeology and its historical associations.

Marcon completed the detail development, manufacture, delivery and installation of the museum fit-out within the visitor centre, including graphics, AV hardware and the coordination of all work-packages.  The project also includes the manufacture and installation of externally sited interpretation through a series of jesmonite plinths, some of which include low-level interactive elements.

Marcon’s heritage team worked closely with London based interpretive designers Drinkall Dean, turning their creative vision into reality.
