Charles Holland’s Big Drawing

The Explorers

During the Explorers engagement programme ideas and suggestions for future uses for The West Wing Battery were collected from the 4 walks from the green notebooks that each participant was given.

Charles Holland has made an amalgam of these ideas to inform his Big drawing.

All the ideas and suggestions that were noted in the notebooks are listed below in the order they came up and also recorded is how many times each suggestion was mentioned per walk. So several ideas repeat themselves and sometimes appear as slightly different things (cafe, local cafe, community cafe etc.)
