Pendle Hill is the source of several streams in the Ribble Catchment, some flowing into the Ribble itself, with others flowing south to the River Calder. The Landscape Partnership project offers a fantastic opportunity for the Trust to tackle several water quality issues at their source.
The Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership project, led by the Forest of Bowland AONB, was awarded £1.8 million by the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2018. The grant is being used to restore, enhance and conserve the heritage and landscape of Pendle Hill, reconnecting people with their past and their landscape, and creating a sustainable future for the environment.
Ribble Trust is helping the project achieve its aims by involving local volunteers in the planting of new woodland and control of invasive species around this iconic landmark.
In the first two years of the four year project there have been some amazing milestones reached, and we’re really proud to have taken part in this project by creating woodlands and controlling invasive species.
Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership Scheme have created an interactive map which you can use to find our more about the project, it’s activities, and who the partners are. You can view the map, and find out more about the project at: pendlehillproject.com/pendle-map.
