The scheme has five aims:National Lottery Heritage Fund Logo

  1. We will restore, enhance and conserve the heritage and landscape of Pendle Hill
  2. We will re-connect people with the landscape
  3. We will re-connect people and the past
  4. We will bring together the two sides of the hill
  5. We will create a sustainable future for the environment, heritage and for visitors’ experience of Pendle Hill


The scheme will provide opportunities for training and volunteering; restore important landscape features; support research and develop innovative interpretation to inspire a new generation about heritage – all underpinned with the engagement of more people, and a wider range of communities.

The scheme is delivered through 12 projects, many also involving a ‘Gathering’ that comprise a strong element of creative arts, bringing people together from both sides of the hill, building cohesion and creating shared points of view. In addition three threads of activity – volunteering, outdoor learning, and interpretation – draw together the projects and support high quality engagement.
