Student helps secure Heritage Lottery Funding
(25 November 2015)
The Forest of Bowland's Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership has received £2 million worth of funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The application was informed by socio-economic analysis carried out by student Caitlin Robinson as part of the Planning and Environmental Management Client-Based Project, in the School of Environment, Education and Development. This is the second year in a row that Client-Based Projects have helped successful bids for a Landscape Partnership bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund. Last year, the Great Manchester Wetlands Partnership worked with our students to develop a plan for a new public access route as part of the Carbon Landscape.
The Forest of Bowland project aims to reconnect people from both sides of the hill to their landscape and to their past. It will restore important wildlife and landscape features, tell the stories of radical Pendle people from the past, explore the geology and heritage of the hill, and inspire a new generation to enjoy the area.
