Happy Birthday to the Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership!
It's been a busy first year for the team and partners. Most of our 14 projects are now up and running and we are making a positive impact on the landscape and heritage of the area. The poster shows some of our key achievements since last summer.
The work continues, and we are looking forward to running many more new activities, community events and opportunities to learn more about our fantastic landscape and local heritage.
Highlights for year 2 include:
- the unveiling of the Pendle Mobile Hill on Saturday 25th May at the Garage in Brierfield as part of our annual Gathering event
- installation of the Pendle Radicals Trail celebrating notable thinkers and activists from the area
- production of village Treasure Trail leaflets in Barrowford and Sabden
- creation of a new bridleway linking Chatburn with Downham; and refurbishment of the Information Barn in Downham
- a programme of free outdoor learning events for schools and toddlers, and also for families during half term and the summer holidays
- continuing opportunities for volunteering through our programme of regular practical conservation days; plus activities for People Enjoying Nature which is our project supporting people dealing with mental health and social isolation issues
- another chance to apply for funds for community heritage schemes in the LP area
- free training in dry stone walling and hedgelaying skills; plus a number of walls and hedges will be restored to good condition
The Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
