Our Living Working Landscape
In 2014, a group of community organisations and individuals came together and agreed a vision for the Penwith landscape:
“a resilient living, working Penwith landscape where farming prospers while protecting natural resources, restoring habitat connectivity and enhancing the archaeological heritage; a landscape that is loved, enjoyed and supported by local communities and visitors”.
Towards the end of 2015, this group – now known as the ‘First and Last – Penwith Landscape Partnership Board’ – was successful in getting a generous allocation of funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to develop thirteen projects which will help to conserve and enhance this unique landscape.
A small part of the funding is now being used to work up these projects which will hopefully start in earnest in 2018.
From helping Parishes to survey and access the heritage and wildlife within their areas to looking at potential uses of redundant buildings; encouraging traditional farming practices and establishing monitor farms that will demonstrate good practice – all the projects have the conservation of the unique Penwith landscape at their heart.
