The Millennium Screen

Culm Valley Millennium Screen

Measuring an impressive 6ft by 25ft the Culm Valley Millennium Screen is a stunning display of mixed media portraying the life and landscape of the five local villages of Clayhidon, Hemyock, Culmstock, Uffculme and Willand that lie on the banks of the River Culm.

Originating from an idea from local men Jonathan Meads and Peter Reed, the Millennium Screen was created as one of five projects to celebrate the Millennium and create a lasting snapshot of the Culm Valley for future generations.

Over 100 people from the five villages worked together to create this magnificent mural that is on display at Coldharbour Mill. Each contributor brought their own personality, perspective and talent to the creation of the screens so each panel reflects the individual character of the village it portrays.

The more you look at the screen the more you can see. Rolling hills, individual buildings and even historic events appear in this rich tapestry…. including the murder in Clayhidon and the Uffculme firework explosion…
