Historical display for New Forest Hotels

bartley lodge display

We had fun in the office last week re-creating the original mineral display boxes for the New Forest Hotels Bartley Lodge. The former childhood home of renowned geologist Charles Lyell, the hotel ground floor is home to copies of letters between Charles Darwin and Charles Lyell along with this informative mineral display box.

We utilised a new wallpaper ‘Galapagos’ from Sanderson, which features an ancient map of the Galapagos islands – a place visited by Darwin carrying a copy of Lyell’s book ‘The Principles of Geology’.
