HLF awards funds to seven projects 27/10/08

The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has earmarked seven awards totalling £8million made through its Landscape Partnership Scheme.

The areas which will benefit are:

Blaenavon, a World Heritage Site, celebrated for South Wales’ role in the 18th and 19th centuries as a leading producer of iron and coal;
Sefton Coast, Merseyside’s ‘coastal green lung’;
The South Pennines, part of the backbone that runs the length of northern England;
Applecross, a remote peninsula in west Scotland reached by a spectacular, alpine-style mountain pass;
The Isle of Harris, a combination of crystal clear sea and pristine sandy beaches, set against a craggy mountain range;
The Ochils, a dramatic hill range located in Clackmannanshire;
The Five Parishes, part of the Sperrins Mountain range in south County Londonderry/Derry.

HLF’s Landscape Partnerships have been running for the past four years and these new awards now bring the total invested to £48million.

29 landscapes across the UK are benefiting, from the remote Orkney archipelago to the cliffs of Dorset's Jurassic Coast.

Jenny Abramsky, chair of the Heritage Lottery Fund, said: “Our landscapes are as much under threat as other parts of our heritage yet we often take them for granted. This Landscape Partnership Scheme is helping protect some of the UK’s most spectacular scenery by bringing together groups, with a shared passion for supporting the heritage of the surrounding natural environment, to form strong partnerships rather than working in isolation.”
