Albion’s visit to the West Wing Battery

The Explorers

On February 1st 2019 James Wood from Lee-Evans partnership, the conservation architects who have been brought in by the Land Trust to work on conserving and stabilising the West Wing Battery, showed John Orchard, Gavin Oakley and Peter Cocks from Albion Inc and Stella Hall around the site. Albion have been given the one-year engagement programme at Fort Burgoyne and Stella Hall will be working with them.

The Explorers programme is part of Pioneering Places East Kent: Dover developed by Dover Arts Development and Charles Holland Architects to support the conservation and opening up of the West Wing Battery of Fort Burgoyne through art led community engagement

Pioneering Places is part of the national Great Place Scheme, an ambitious project that will make East Kent an even better place to live, work and visit by exploring heritage, developing civic pride and connecting artists and communities. Four projects in Canterbury, Dover, Folkestone and Ramsgate are being led by cultural organisations to encourage local people to get involved and shape the place where they live. Supported through Arts Council England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund, with Historic England and Artswork, the South East Bridge.
