About Pennine Horizons

The Pennine Horizons vision is to tell the 1000 year old story of the interaction between the Pennine landscape created by the ice age & hundreds of years of history, & the move from an agricultural society to an industrial society. 

Through activities, events & exhibitions across The Calder & her Valleys; together with the e-Trails & the Pennine Horizons Digital Archive, we encourage residents & visitors alike to explore the history of the Pennine landscape & its industrial legacy.

About Pennine Heritage

Pennine Heritage was launched in 1979 as a Development Trust, registered charity and company limited by guarantee, to promote environmental conservation plus economic and social enhancement of the South Pennines. Our story is about  the 1000 year relationship between the local people and the dramatic Pennine Landscape.

Over the years Pennine Heritage has worked on many projects from countryside management and building preservation, saving buildings such as Clegg Hall and Nutclough Mill. More information on the different projects we have been involved in can be found on our website, www.pennineheritage.org.uk

The Pennine Horizons Project

Using the landscape of the South Pennines with its rich history, we have been developing Pennine Horizons e-Trails around the valleys and tops & making them available through printed guides as well as offering them as a mobile app.

We have been expanding the Pennine Horizons Digital Archive which hosts a wealth of images, reflecting the South Pennines & its diverse history. The project is working to continue to collect & add material; with some of the collection available online for everyone to use & enjoy. 

We will continue to take photographic & interactive exhibitions out into the community, alongside gathering new Oral Histories to capture the living history of this inspiring area.

The project aims to appeal to a wide spectrum of people, from local communities who want to discover more about their own heritage, to visitors discovering the unique history of the area. To achieve this, we are working with many local community groups & residents as well as engaging volunteers, schools, colleges, private businesses, local authorities & public agencies.

Why not follow us on Twitter, Facebook or our blog on the website to keep up to date with what we are doing?
