New dioramas show the way round Audlem

Two new dioramas – they are large illustrated maps showing where Audlem's sights, shops and facilities are – have now been installed. One is at the entrance to the car park in Cheshire Street, the other on Audlem Wharf between the Shroppie Fly and the Canal Shop.

The dioramas, which have been designed and produced to a very high standard, will give visitors to the village more information and so encourage them to see as much of the village as possible. While everyone local knows where the canal is, for example, to anybody driving on to the car park it's not so obvious. Similarly, visitors arriving on a narrowboat, may not know where the Post Office is.

The dioramas, which were suggested as part of the Parish Plan, have been paid for by the Parish Council out of the money awarded to the village for its success in the 'Calor Village of the Year' and 'Defra' competitions two years ago.

Based on a map by Phil Johnson, their design has been supervised by Pam Seddon and they were produced by The Sign Studio of Crewe. The photographs were by Phil Baker, Ken Maple and Geoff Seddon. The signs were put up by Bill Consterdine, Mike Hill and John Davies.
