Woodstock is an ancient and beautiful town crammed full of buildings of historic interest. With lots of visitors too the Town Council approached the workshop to carve a series of plaques that would highlight some of the stories and places of interest around the town.
Each of the 10 plaques were individually designed with a mixture of carving and lettering. Although they share a family likeness, because the tablets are spread throughout the town each one could be treated differently. Portland limestone was chosen as a gentle contrast to the local building stone. The size, shape and scale of each plaque was designed with careful consideration of the building or space to which it was attached.
