Down Your Wold project

Written on Thursday 18th June 2015

Welcome to the Down Your Wold project.   A community heritage project hosted by Heritage Lincolnshire and funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service.

The heritage of the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is rich and diverse, but not a lot of it is well understood. In most of the Lincolnshire Wolds heritage assets have developed over multiple periods, Down Your Wold hopes to get people to be able to see these layers within the landscape through discovering and exploring heritage assets in the field and through specialist talks. 

We want you to take part in Down Your Wold. This is a project which gives you the chance to make an important contribution to the understanding and survival of your heritage. In some cases these heritage assets are the last evidence of millennia gone by. 

Down Your Wold is your chance to discover more about the heritage of the villages, landscapes and people who have shaped the Lincolnshire Wolds and in turn been shaped by their surroundings. 

The project aims to get you out into the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) to learn about this unique landscape through learning to: 

·         Research its history, people and buildings. 

·         Read its features and see how it has changed over the centuries. 

·         Celebrate the local fashions and materials that give the Lincolnshire Wolds their distinctive character. 

Down Your Wold will give you the opportunity to take part in a variety of events that are fun, engaging and educational for all ages. You could: 

The most exciting part is that we want to hear from you, with your suggestions on what you would like to discover and explore about the heritage in your area. 

Whatever your interests might be, Down Your Wold has something for everyone

Down Your Wold has a dedicated project officer who is coordinating this two year HLF funded project under the guidance of a steering group.

Please contact us for more information.  It would be appreciated if you let them know you heard about them through Kay Books website :)
