Suveying wildlife in Fineshade Wood


Surveying wildlife in Fineshade Wood

People, parishes, projects and partners

One of the key aims of Rockingham Forest Vision is to raise the local and national profile of Rockingham Forest, connecting local communities to its natural and cultural heritage. This is the particular focus of  the current project: Building the Links for Rockingham Forest, funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

This section of the website also features some of the groups and organisations working in Rockingham Forest together with some of tthe work of the communities who live here. In particular you will find details of "Parish Nature Recovery Plans" - communities working to boost nature in their own area.  Also you can read about the funded training for teaching assistants  to become Leaders of Forest School.

About Rockingham Forest Vision

Here you will find the aims of Rockingham Forest Vision, who we are, how it all came about and what we have achieved so far.

You may also find that there may be a role for you as we move the vision forward.


The "Building the Links" project

A lottery-funded project bringing together a group of nine partners for a period of two years.  The aim is to reconnect people and communities to the forest as well as to encourage ways in which the forest itself can become more of a coherent entity.
