Small Heritage Adoption
Tucked away across the South West Peak there are heritage assets of historic importance both large and small. These assets range from Bronze Age burial mounds to lime kilns and many are only known locally or monitored infrequently.
The goal of the Small Heritage Adoption project is to create the tools and provide the training necessary for individual volunteers and communities as a whole to identify and monitor the condition of these important icons of the South West Peaks past. Funds will also be available for the restoration and repair of monuments where the need is greatest.
Individual sites or features will be adopted by enthusiastic volunteers who will receive detailed practical training in the tools and techniques necessary for ensuring that the next generation of South West Peak residents and visitors can enjoy the same sense of deep history that so many are able to experience.
Come and hear about four of our projects: Engaging Communities, Glorious Grasslands, Barns and Buildings and Small Heritage Adoption, and see how you can get involved
