Celebrating Our Picturesque Landscape
Since the eighteenth century people have been attracted to the Dee Valley and what is now the World Heritage Site, to enjoy the landscape and engage in art and poetry.
Our Picturesque Landscape Partnership scheme centres on the landscape of the Dee Valley and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal World Heritage Site and takes as its theme the inspirational journeys that have and continue to be a feature of the area which is crossed by the Canal, Telford’s A5, the Llangollen Railway and the River Dee.
A new and exciting five year project, follows these inspirational journeys recognising that this is a landscape under extreme and growing pressure, with high and increasing numbers of visitors attracted to some of our most fragile sites. The Partnership aims to conserve and protect this unique area by;
- Conserving views, heritage and habitats
- Improving access to key sites
- Engaging people and communities with our special landscape.
A Partnership Officer, Community and Engagement Officer and Admin and Social Media Officer are working with partners from the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal World Heritage Site, Wrexham County Borough Council, Denbighshire County Council, the Canal and River Trust, Shropshire Council, Natural Resources Wales, Cadw, Cadwyn Clwyd, Aqueducks (Friends of the World Heritage Site) and the Friends of the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley.
