Thanks to money raised by National Lottery players, the Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership has secured £1.8million from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for its ambitious and exciting four year programme of heritage activity based on and around the iconic hill. The scheme aims to reconnect people with their heritage and the landscape of this special place.
The partnership is led by the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the National Lottery grant award is the result of three years of consultation and development. Also on board with the scheme are local councils, farmers and landowners, arts and environment organisations, and community groups.
Plans for year one of the scheme include
- An archaeological excavation looking for evidence of the real Malkin Tower
- Upgrading of footpaths and creation of a walkers' seat and panorama on the summit of Pendle Hill
- Three artists in residence working alongside projects to explore the subjects and engage with more people
- Volunteers helping with conservation projects including tree planting and woodland management
- 20 day visits to the area for the innovative People Enjoying Nature (PEN) project
- Volunteers researching and celebrating a number of Pendle Radical stories
- Launch of a new website and visitor information
