The Bureau catalogue the changes and discrepancies that are yet to make their way on to the ordinary maps. They’re here to calibrate the cobbles, measure the mice, rotate rhubarb, and weigh hay. As they survey the settlement, no stone will be left unturned or leaf unlisted.
With your help, they’ll blueprint your bogs, grade your grass, scale your streams and triangulate your trees. They need YOU to assist in the reconstruction, in miniature, of your community and put your village back on the map!
To create and develop this show Burn The Curtain worked closely with members of the Northern Devon Nature Improvement Area who are delivering a landscape-scale project within the Torridge catchment. This DEFRA funded initiative is one of 12 nationally significant pilots across England. Support and expertise were provided by both Devon Wildlife Trust and Natural England.
