U-Turn Round & AudioFrame 15 – Winchester City Mill

{

…More recently two pieces of our standard interpretive kit has been used to create additional points of information for people taking a tour of the site A very fitting U-Turn Round (which also provides energy via wind-up power) shares 5 audio commentaries regarding the River, Waterwheel, Gears, Millstones and Otters on the river.

Winchester City Mill is a National Trust site on the River Itchen which after a 12 year restoration project completed in 2004 was returned to working order, once again able to grind flour by water power as it did from 1743 to the early 20th century. Thanks to volunteer millers the Winchester City Mill produces and sells over 10 tonnes of wholemeal flour each year.

A mixture of hands-on activities and audio-visual displays coupled with weekend milling demonstrations make Winchester City Mill a hugely popular heritage site with visitors. More recently two pieces of our standard interpretive kit has been used to create additional points of information for people taking a tour of the site.

Located near the waterwheel a very fitting U-Turn Round (which also provides energy via wind-up power) shares 5 audio commentaries regarding the River, Waterwheel, Gears, Millstones and Otters on the river. Being located in such a damp environment without access to power (as well as merging so well with the theme of harnessing renewable energy) makes the U-Turn an ideal means with which to share this information with visitors.

An AudioFrame 15 has been used to provide access to a number of historical ‘Stories from the Mill’ in the main room, built into a wooden stand produced separately by the interpretive team at the Mill, the AF15 allows visitors to simply press a button to hear a story. The front panel artwork was designed by the client team in-house once content was finalised whilst the use of 2 plastic handsets avoids audio bleed to surrounding areas.
