The Landscape Partnership

The Landscape Partnership spans the historic boundary between Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire and was supported by a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.  The Partnership’s aim was to reconnect people with their landscape and cultural heritage.

The Partnership area covers an area of 233 square kilometres; located in the Humberhead Levels it includes parishes in North Lincolnshire and Doncaster Metropolitan Borough areas.

The Landscape Partnership sought to conserve the landscape heritage – both natural and cultural – in distinctive landscapes, whilst delivering benefits for people within and beyond the areas the Landscape Partnership covers.  In particular, it aimed to change the way people understand, perceive and relate to the landscapes they live in, work in, or visit.

In doing this the Landscape Partnership scheme created a holistic and balanced approach to the management of landscape heritage, helping people to connect with it, thereby leading to continued activity and a lasting legacy.  The Landscape Partnership offered people the skills and training to gain the experience to help deliver the individual projects outcomes, and to continue to use these skills after the Partnership has ended.

The Isle of Axholme and Hatfield Chase Landscape Partnership was awarded £1.8m by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, which allowed the Partnership to deliver 21 projects with match funding worth £3m.

The partnership is made up of the following organisations:

Thanks to the National Lottery Players investing money to help people across the UK explore, enjoy and protect the heritage they care about – from the archaeology under our feet to the historic parks and buildings we love, from precious memories and collections to rare wildlife.
