Land, Life, Water Exhibition

An exhibition of the Clyde and Avon Valley Past and Present

Filed under History & Archaeology

The Land, Life Water exhibition was on show at Chatelherault Country Park from February 16th to March 19th, 2018. 

The exhibition showcased over 70 projects that have taken place since 2011, as part of the Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership (CAVLP) – one of many UK based, large-scale Landscape Partnership schemes supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The £5 million CAVLP programme was created to celebrate and enhance the area’s landscape and cultural heritage with a range of organisations, social cooperatives, community groups, individuals, and volunteers. An exciting programme of events ran alongside the exhibition, from archaeological clay workshops to guided walks in the woodlands, provided by a number of partners.

You can explore the exhibition through the gallery and publications below.
