Do you have the passion, drive and experience to deliver a new, innovative scheme comprising 20 ambitious projects? The Chase & Chalke Landscape Partnership has been awarded £1.68m from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Together with partner match funding, this £2.7m scheme aims to enhance the natural, historic and cultural heritage of this stunning, historic landscape through encouraging widespread community engagement and involvement.
Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a stunning landscape of rolling chalk grassland, ancient woodlands, chalk escarpments, downland hillsides and chalk river valleys.
