Pooley Country Park
Owned by Warwickshire County Council, Pooley Country Park is a former colliery located in Polesworth. Now a visitor attraction, one third of the park is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest which contains several pools caused by mining subsidence, woodland habitats and a canal.
To raise awareness of the area’s heritage, ecology and human impact, we designed a log book for children, who could tick‐off ‘finds’ over the course of a year. The log book also serves as an educational tool, giving a brief history of the site, from its roots as a coal mine, to a much‐loved outdoor space. We chose a recycled stock to provide texture and complement the woodland theme.
