Miner 2 Major

Celebrating the diverse wildlife, important habitats and rich heritage of Sherwood Forest
Discover projects

Miner2Major is a five-year Landscape Partnership Scheme (2019-2023), supported by a £2,450,400 grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

The legendary Sherwood Forest is a significant and celebrated landscape due to its diverse wildlife, important habitats and rich heritage.

The last 200 years have changed the area.  It still has quiet places, stunning landscapes, history, wildlife, legend and a sense of belonging, but the great forest and heaths are now just patches in a landscape of industrial heritage.

Miner2Major is a partnership of local authorities, conservation groups and community organisations who have been working in the Sherwood Forest area for many years. This is the latest phase of long-term efforts to restore, explore and celebrate the Forest.
