    Ashfield District Council

An historic market town within the former coalfields of north Nottinghamshire, Hucknall has a rich heritage and was the birth or resting place of many famous, historical figures.

Ashfield District Council required a refresh of the town’s tourism signage and Monkie produced an updated solution with new mapping and imagery. Highlighted stories include poet Lord Byron, mathematician Ada Lovelace, composer Eric Coates, the long-gone mining and framework knitting industries, and its historic church which features a small visitor centre incorporating many of the featured themes.

Interpretation panels at five sites, lead visitors from the local public transport hub, through the town, to its central market place. Along the way, fascinating stories reveal the true significance the town plays in Nottinghamshire history.
