Welcome to the first edition of this newsletter which has been produced to give you an update on the Heritage Lottery funded Westmorland Dales Hidden Landscapes Partnership Scheme.

We are now 6 months into our development phase so have been busy setting up the scheme and getting out to meet people. All this will lead to a round 2 bid to Heritage Lottery in July 2018 and, assuming this is successful, the main delivery phase of the scheme from January 2019 to December 2022. 

In the meantime there is much to do, not least in engaging people in projects focusing on the area’s outstanding built heritage, hence this edition’s focus on Heritage Workshops.

The workshops are a great way for you to discover more about vulnerable man-made historical features in the Westmorland Dales. They will help you to develop recording skills to carry out condition surveys of walls, traditional farm buildings and small scale historical features such as lime kilns, stone troughs, sheep folds, dew ponds and boundary markers.
