Dales Trust seeks funds for new project
Bookmark and Share
Those who like to walk around the Yorkshire Dales with their backpacks may have an interest in a proposed conservation project that may enhance the local landscape.

Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust is seeking £2 million of lottery funding for a new programme to be called the Craven Dales Landscape Partnership, with the backing of the national park authority.

It said it wants to improve the environment for the benefit of locals, visitors and the region's economy.

Walkers who visit the area in the south-west of the national park may wish to respond to an invitation to contribute ideas, alongside residents.

Director of conservation and community at the national park authority Gary Smith said: "We're looking for people to help us identify the kind of projects that will make a real difference to the area."

Other conservation plans in the Yorkshire Dales are finding very different ways to make money.

The Three Peaks project - which aims to maintain paths and the local environment around Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent - is to receive a 15p contribution from every purchase of the Butcher's Board, a house speciality at the Lion pub in Settle.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801255569-ADNFCR
