New Pioneer Sailing Trust Exhibition to take place at the Cutty Sark in London

Smith and Jones Design Consultants are working with the Pioneer Sailing Trust in Essex, on the development of an exciting temporary exhibition at the Cutty Sark in London.

The Pioneer Sailing Trust is a voluntary run charity based in the town of Brightlingsea, Essex. They provide opportunities for young people from across the East of England to have experience at sea and to develop skills to enter the marine industry. To achieve this, the trust operates the sail training vessel ‘Pioneer’, a class one Essex oyster smack built in 1864 and restored by the trust in 2003.  

The Pioneer Sailing Trust was awarded funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to help tell the story of two historic vessels that operated off the East coast of England. The ‘Land and Sea’ project aims to highlight the role that Trinity House played in keeping the East Coast fishing fleet safe at sea in the Thames Estuary, an area containing many navigational hazards. Central to this aim is the restoration of Trinity House Motor Launch 393 and Priscilla CK437 which, when finished, will see a new life.

Smith and Jones have developed the overall vision for the exhibition and developed a range of interactive activities that help visitors connect with, and understand the process involved in restoring a historic vessel such as the Priscilla CK437.

The exhibition design we have developed will run at the Cutty Sark in London for a number of weeks, before touring the South East at various locations.
