IRON MAKING is to be brought to life at a Leicestershire tourist attraction - thanks to a new audio-visual presentation created by Quiet Storm.
Moira Furnace attracts an increasing number of visitors who go to discover what this "blast from the past" is all about, as well as to enjoy the range of facilities the site now offers.
An important part of the experience is the hands-on exhibition, housed in the early 19th century furnace building. It includes samples of raw materials and plenty of examples of iron products.
But Site Manager Wendy Robinson felt the complicated process of how iron was actually made needed to be portrayed in a new and livelier way.
The Moira Furnace Trust, which runs the heritage attraction with support from North West Leicestershire District Council, decided an audio-visual presentation would meet the need.
The work was awarded to Quiet Storm, who have also produced visitor guides for Moira Furnace in the past.
The presentation involves live action, old photographs of iron making and some animation.
Commenting on it, Wendy Robinson said: "We are very pleased with what has been put together."
"It is very appropriate to the museum and will combine nicely with the guided tours we already offer."
Quiet Storm expects the presentation to be running at Moira for the start of the 2003 season.Back
