Heritage Lottery Fund

The Heritage Lottery Fund has given a grant of £973,000 under its Landscape Partnership Scheme to a partnership led by Shropshire Wildlife Trust. The money will be spent in the heart of the meres and mosses of north Shropshire and south Cheshire, taking in the countryside around Ellesmere, Whitchurch, Whixall and the Cholmondeley Estate.

The money will restore nature reserves and support farmers in the creation of wildlife oases. New nature trails will be created to help people explore this amazing landscape. Events and activities will be arranged, including boating, angling and walking. Local people will be able to learn traditional skills such as making Cheshire cheese, or find out about the hidden secrets of the bog-lands. The scheme will also work with communities to deliver local landscape projects.
