An exciting and new centre is set to be opened at Once Brewed in Northumberland National Park. Called The Sill, it will be a centre of national significance and will focus on learning and discovery about the environment and the landscape. The Sill will vastly enhance the visitor’s experience of the Northumberland National Park. It is a joint project between Northumberland National Park Authority and YHA, and both have received initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for the project.
Two men will learn the ancient skill of dry stone walling in the coming summer months. The men will be part of the four-year Heritage Landscape Skills project which is being funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. They will learn the craft in the North Pennines AONB in the North of England. The two trainees are Lee Hope of Warburton Crescent, Gateshead, Tyne and Wear and Dale Pattinson of Highfields, Tow Law, County Durham.
The Altogether Archaeology project of the last few years has been such a hit that it will proceed again this year. The project is led by the North Pennines AONB Partnership and has received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). Members of the public are asked to step forward and give ideas on which areas they would like to explore.
