The organisations working on the HLF bid have developed a ‘vision’ – this is a statement that outlines what we hope can be achieved by the HLF programme.
“As a result of HLF funding we will secure the future of the Valley as a place of enjoyment, excitement, and inspiration, where agriculture, modern industry, heritage, wildlife and recreation reside harmoniously for centuries to come.
This means that:
• Newly created communities will embrace the river and learn about what makes the area unique
• Opportunities to explore the Nene Valley on foot and by bike will be improved
• The character of the Nene Valley will be enhanced through the protection and restoration of iconic features such as hay meadows, river navigation structures, and industrial sites/structures
• The history of the area will be more visible through careful use of interpretation, activities and events.”
