Revealing the hidden stories of the Nene Valley: A Landscape Partnership Scheme supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Promoting, protecting and preserving the River Nene and its heritage.

Please bear with us while the website is under construction. As the projects take form and our partners work with us to build an even firmer vision for Nenescape, we will add more information on this website.

About the project

This Heritage Lottery funded collaborative project will bring together partners from along the River Nene between Northampton and Peterborough to celebrate, protect and conserve the natural and built heritage of the landscape. The River Nene Regional Park is leading the project in partnership with a wide range of organisations.

The river valley has hidden gems – ancient mill sites, wintering bird habitats, nationally important Roman archaeology and buzzing wildflower meadows to name a few – but this special and underappreciated collection is under threat from fast population growth. 

There are, however, many passionate organisations and individuals in the area working to look after the landscape and Nenescape will support their projects by increasing access into the landscape, sharing skills and knowledge across partners and ensuring that the river is resilient to increasing visitor numbers.

See below for a map of the Landscape Partnership Scheme and the projects and partners we're working with. There is so much happening in the Nenescape area that it will take a little while to build this map. Come back again to see this map develop with more information about the fantastic projects we'll be delivering over the next 5 years.

If you'd like to see a map of cycling routes in the area, please go to the Sustrans website for inspiration and ideas.
