Fort Amherst, Chatham

Interpretation Strategy for the Command of the Heights Project.

The intertwining high fortress walls and underground tunnels of this Napoleonic Fortress, make the visitor experience of Fort Amherst, a memorable one. The history and culture of the communities and soldiers who lived and worked here, will be told through the physical experience of the fort landscapes. 

MeiLoci were engaged to undertake the landscape masterplan as part of the Heritage Lottery Funded regeneration scheme for the site, with the brief to bring the site's fascinating heritage back to life through art, interpretation and landscape. We worked with the client, Medway Council and the Fort Amherst Heritage Trust to develop landscape and interpretation installations which tell the stories of the sites rich heritage through the detailed interpretation strategy.
