NT Sheffield Park Ouse Project: National Trust Sheffield Park in West Sussex began a major restoration, funded by the NLHF, in 2018 and appointed evaluators Pam Jarvis and Anna Cullum. Covid-19 delayed the project, which is now nearing completion. The project aims to encourage people to learn about the site's heritage, learn new skills and get involved with the restoration and ecological and archaeological monitoring. Current and new visitors are now enjoying the opportunity to better understand the heritage and engage with this natural space.
Renaissance and Renewal: Houghton Hall Park, located in an urban community in Bedfordshire is undergoing regeneration to celebrate its heritage and improve facilities. Restoration of the gardens is a particular highlight of this NLHF initiative. sam-culture's evaluation, with Anna Cullum, will focus on the heritage-based activity and volunteer programme which features innovative approaches to engage hard- to- reach communities.
