About Nenescape Landscape Partnership


This National Lottery Heritage funded collaborative project brings 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. Find out more about the National Lottery Heritage Fund and landscape partnership schemes here.

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.

Nenescape’s vision is in two parts; to understand and promote the identity of the Nene Valley and explore how past industries and peoples have shaped the landscape; and to bring communities together, developing their skills to respond to current and future pressures through the interpretation and restoration of heritage and habitats.
