The Fellfoot Forward Landscape Partnership Scheme, led by the North Pennines AONB Partnership, is being developed with local communities and organisations. The work will forge creative connections between people and landscape, conserve habitats and key species and celebrate this beautiful area with its communities.

This distinctive working landscape stretches from the Cumbrian fellside of the North Pennines AONB and UNESCO Global Geopark, to the River Eden, and runs north from Melmerby to Hallbankgate. Fellfoot Forward is a Landscape Partnership Scheme supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Following this current development period, project delivery will start in early 2020, for four years, subject to a second stage grant approval.

The Fellfoot Forward Landscape Partnership Scheme development grant is £162,000 and, over the next 18 months, this resource will be used to help fine-tune the project in collaboration with local people. If the project is awarded a second stage grant approval, this will bring a further £2m of Heritage Lottery Funding to deliver the whole scheme between 2020 and 2024.
