Interpretation panel created for Morris Bros (Tavistock) Ltd detailing the history of the Bedford Foundry, which formerly operated on this site.Tavistock funeral directors Morris Brothers are based in buildings on the site of the town's former Bedford Foundry.

The company wanted to place an interpretation panel, detailing the development and history of the nineteenth century foundry which had operated at this location, and contacted Graphic Words.



The Bedford Foundry Interpretation Panel  on display outside Morris Bros. (Tavistock) Ltd.Working with a local researcher, we developed this interpretation panel, which
shows the foundry's importance to the local mining industry while it flourished -
and also its relevance to Tavistock's place as part of the Cornwall and West Devon
Mining World Heritage Site. The panel also offers readers a brief history of
Morris Brothers Ltd.

The 1.2 metre wide panel was printed in u/v resistant inks, mounted on a rigid
foamex board, and matt laminated. It is on permanent display outside the building
in a purpose-made display case.
