At the meeting on Friday the partnership agreed to change the name of LP to “Ouse Washes: The Heart of the Fens”. Partnership members felt the word ‘heart’ was more appropriate due to the unique and important role the Bedford Levels play in the draining of the Fens.
Welcome to the new blog for the Ouse Washes: Gateway to the Fens Landscape Partnership Scheme.
We’ve set this blog up so that anyone associated with or interested in the Scheme can keep up to date with its progress as we develop it from a raw idea into a fully thought-out application ready for submission to the Heritage Lottery Fund in February 2012.
We hope you will take the opportunity to visit the other pages on this site which will tell you about why we think the Ouse Washes deserve to be conserved, celebrated and made more accessible both to people who live locally and visitors to the area.
If you have any thoughts on this site or on the Landscape Partnership Scheme itself then please feel free to reply or comment on posts. We’d be delighted to hear from you and will endeavour to use feedback provided to improve this site or to feed into our application development work.
