Watershed Landscapes work steaming ahead! -
28 October 2010

Work is progressing well in a range of work areas that make up the Watershed Landscapes project. The ‘Inspired by Landscape’ part of the project has appointed five aspiring artists and writers who will be funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and South Penn

The artists and writers selected offer an exciting range of art forms. As well as being supported to develop their own practice and create new work in the visual arts and literature, the artists and writers will also be working with a variety of community groups, schools, families and young ambassadors within the South Pennines through a series of workshops.

As part of the access improvement part of the programme, a popular walking route which runs from Whetstone Gate to the Trig point along the southern boundary of Ilkley Moor will be improved this winter. This new walking surface will help to restore a badly eroded landscape and protect the fragile peat and associated habitat from further damage. Work on the ‘Historic Environment’ theme has also gathered pace with the start of survey work on mineral extraction sites, and prehistoric carved rocks. Working to improve rural parts of Airedale is a key component of the Airedale Masterplan.
