Quantock Landscape Partnership Scheme
In the Footsteps of the Romantic Poets
A resource to help educators engage creatively with the Quantock Hills
A shared vision for the Quantock Hills
The Quantock Landscape Partnership Scheme was created to address some of the challenges ahead for the landscape of the Quantock Hills and for the communities that surround them. Supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and hosted by the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this 5 year, £2.6m programme runs from April 2020. Check out www.qlps.org to find out more.
At the heart of the Landscape Partnership Scheme are a suite of twenty-three projects. This website has been produced by SPAEDA on behalf of the QLPS to support one of these projects, In the Footsteps of the Romantic Poets, which is where you can find the structured learning for children and young people.
To find out more about everything the QLPS will be doing in the next few years, download the Landscape Conservation Action Plan. There will be lots of opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to get involved.
