The text in your exhibition will help to guide visitors and will also bring your exhibition to life for them.
You will need to create interpretive text for the introductory panel, each of the sections and the item labels. This will help visitors understand why you have chosen to display these items, what links them together and, most importantly, what your key messages are.
Make sure you have planned your exhibition layout before you begin writing. If you know how items relate to each other in the display, this will help you make decisions about what to include in your text. See planning the exhibition layout.
Old Rectory Sale Catalogue, 1922
This was produced when the Old Rectory was auctioned in 1922. It gives a detailed description of the house and gardens. It also shows the interior. During World War II, the original railings from the garden wall were removed and melted down for the war effort.
