Vieille Montagne

After receiving a ‘Sharing Heritage’ grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund the Alston Moor Historical Society organised a weekend of activities in Nenthead. To commemorate the 120th anniversary of the arrival of the Vieille Montagne Zinc Mining Company.

 

For this event I designed a roller banner to give a brief history of the Vieille Montagne and the impact they had on the economy. Behind the text and images is a faint historic map of Nenthead which shows the vast amount of land that was owned by the VM.
