Jobs: Brief for a Heritage & Arts Trail in Rutland, Leicestershire

February 24, 2014

A contractor is required to undertake creating a Heritage and Arts Trail in Rutland, Leicestershire.

Rutland County Museum in Oakham and Rocks By Rail, the Living Ironstone Museum in Cottesmore, have secured Arts Council Renaissance Funding to undertake ‘Accessing Rutland’s Museums’, a project to support and promote the museums and heritage of Rutland. The project aims to increase visits to, and engagement with, heritage and arts across Rutland.

One of the key outputs of the project is the creation of a Heritage and Arts Trail across the county. This will include information boards at key sites, a tour booklet and promotional flier.

In 2000, Rutland County Council launched a Rutland Heritage Trail which included a set of seven trail leaflets and a number of information boards. Most of these boards are now missing or badly deteriorated. The leaflets are available as photocopies but the originals no longer exist. We would expect the new Heritage and Arts Trail to build upon the original, but to introduce new elements based on recent research and include arts as well as heritage. A number of new commissioned art works are being created in Rutland through this project and these should be included within the trail.

Contract purpose

The purpose of the contract is to create a Heritage and Arts Trail for Rutland.
