Our Plans and Vision

The Landscape Partnership worked across the landscape to enhance Upper Nidderdale so that:

  • the area’s rich historic environment and cultural heritage is conserved and enhanced for current and future generations (find out more in Historic Nidderdale)
  • Upper Nidderdale supports a diverse and resilient network of wildlife habitats through the efforts of the dale’s sustainable upland farming community (find out more in Wildlife & Farming)
  • a wide range of people of all ages discover, appreciate and enjoy Upper Nidderdale’s special qualities (find out more in Discovery & Learning)
  • visitors are easily able to access, on the ground and online, Upper Nidderdale’s natural environment and heritage features (find out more in Visit Nidderdale)
  • Upper Nidderdale’s communities take inspiration from the area’s heritage past to help to develop a sustainable rural future (find out more in Training & Skills)

The Partnership’s vision remains, and is that:

Upper Nidderdale will continue to be a remote and special place, where the quality of the natural environment is an inspiration to all, where heritage features are cherished and displayed, where visitors will find a welcoming local community who are immensely proud of their surroundings and are full of stories that bring the landscape to life.
