Westmorland Dales Landscape Partnership

The Westmorland Dales Landscape Partnership Scheme aims to unlock and reveal the hidden heritage of the Westmorland Dales, enabling more people to connect with, enjoy and benefit from this inspirational landscape. Thanks to National Lottery players it has been supported by a grant from the Heritage Fund


Summer in the Westmorland Dales

As spring turns into summer there is plenty on offer for you to get involved with safely. We have a series of Wednesday Health and Heritage walks, supplemented on the occasional Saturday with some longer walks including ones in Great Asby on 17th July.

You will be aware that we have cancelled or postponed all of our planned events and activities until we know it is safe to proceed.  We have also taken other steps to reduce the risks to our staff, volunteers and everyone we work with. So our office is now closed and staff will be working from home.

This is particularly disappointing given that we have really started to develop momentum with most of our projects. The second season of our archaeological survey was half way through when the latest guidance was produced. So we have taken the decision to halt the survey but hope to reschedule a further week in the early autumn.

Of course none of us quite know how this will pan out but we will be putting our time to good effect. We’ll be thinking about some activities that people can engage in without putting anyone at risk, particularly once things ease off. And our new small grants scheme Love Your Landscape is up and running. So there’s time to start getting your ideas together, even if we can’t meet yet to discuss them. Keep an eye too on our Instagram and Facebook accounts.

Finally, just to say that although we’ll be working remotely we all remain contactable by email so do keep in contact.
