On 9 and 10 September 2016, Curo supported the ‘Huts & Harbours’ exhibition in Foxhill, Bath. The exhibition, curated by Bath Spa University’s Karen Power, explored the WWII heritage of Foxhill where we are developing the former MoD site into the 700-home Mulberry Park.
The exhibition was part of the national Heritage Open Days scheme and was visited by over 350 local people.
Huts and Harbours took visitors on a journey of discovery to explore how the WWII shaped the development of Foxhill. It showed how Foxhill’s landscape changed from farmland to naval huts to post war prefabs.
At the exhibition, visitors were invited to:
- Relive the experience of Admiralty workers sent to Bath within weeks of war starting
- Explore life inside the naval huts through Combe Down Primary’s amazing site model
- Marvel at the Mulberry Harbour that gave its name to Mulberry Park
- Discover why Foxhill’s post war prefabs were so popular
Sponsored by Bath Spa University and Curo, and supported by The Museum of Bath at Work, Combe Down Heritage Society and Combe Down Primary School, the exhibition was the result of significant research and collaboration.
