Under the Heritage Lottery Fund's Landscape Partnership Scheme programme, the £2.7million Weald Forest Ridge Landscape Partnership Scheme (WFR LPS) was delivered between 2009 and 2012.

The Scheme aimed to enable its audiences to reconnect with their local landscape; more easily access and enjoy the Ridge; understand its unique natural, cultural and built heritage; take part in caring for it; and leave a legacy for future generations.

There were a huge range of diverse outputs, across a very broad spectrum of activities. Long term benefits were embedded in the Scheme's implementation, and an evaluation carried out of the Scheme's delivery.

It communicates core messages about the area's heritage through the promotion of key sites to visit. It has been made widely publicly available through visitor centres, visitor attractions, libraries, etc, and also to local people through doorstep distribution in spring 2013.  Download the leaflet here
