The project will put in place brand new learning panels around the themes of liberty, Magna Carta and Runnymede as a site of commemoration.
This will be a way to teach everyone who walks through about Magna Carta, an incredible document which was signed on site on 15th June 1215, which then paved the way for modern democracy.
The meadows are also home to a number of memorials along with two public artwork pieces. The Jurors is a series of 12 bronze chairs, each incorporating symbols and imagery representing concepts of law and equal rights. If you wander further on through the meadow, you’ll come across Writ in Water, an award winning architectural work by Mark Wallinger which is themed on clause 39 of Magna Carta, reflecting the words into a central pool in the middle of the piece. Interpretation panels will help visitors to discover these beautiful artworks and make them part of their visit.
