South Pennine Projects & Programmes
Working with our partners across area, Pennine Prospects has successfully secured over £ 4.5 M for Projects in the South Pennines for a range of heritage, landscape and community projects.
South Pennines LEADER has funded a range of ‘cultural heritage’ projects including the community radio station – Two Valleys Radio, oral history projects and canal-side access and interpretation.
Developing a ‘sense of place’ is key to our programmes: South Pennine Walk, Ride and Cycle website and the South Pennine Walk and Ride Festivals have received funding from South Pennine LEADER.
The Watershed Landscape Project has received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund from 2010 to 2013. Bringing the story of our uplands alive. Funding has allowed Pennine Prospects to appoint Gavin Edwards as the first South Pennine Community Archaeologist and Anna Marshall our Interpretation Officer.
