COVID-19: Due to the unfolding and rapidly changing coronavirus situation we have made changes to our plans for the forthcoming months. Please read the full statement.
Miner2Major will deliver a number of connected projects over the lifetime of the scheme. The projects are all related to four broad areas.
These projects will enable Miner2Major to work with local communities to help better understand, explore and protect Sherwood Forest.
Celebrate Sherwood is an exciting project that will see Miner2Major attending some of the local festivals across the scheme area to promote the work we are doing.
Is Miner2Major’s exciting informal learning offer.
This project will deliver formal and accredited learning to help people to understand and care for the nature and heritage of Sherwood Forest.
Sherwood Forest is a mosaic of habitats with heathland, oak-birch woodland and wood pasture, alongside extensive areas of arable farmland and commercial conifer plantations.
There are over 193km of rights of way within the Miner2Major scheme area.
Sherwood Forest is home to some very special and iconic species that are characteristic of the area’s unique combination of habitats, and which occur in few other places around the UK.
Trees and hedgerows are a vital component of Sherwood’s landscape
The project will help to better understand the archaeology of Sherwood through commissioning new LiDAR.
Sherwood is home to a wide variety of building types.
The period 1850-1950 saw the landscape of Sherwood change dramatically, mines were sunk, railway lines built, and new towns and villages created.
This is an exciting project that seeks to tell the stories of ten people that lived in, worked in or had an impact on Sherwood Forest.
This grant programme is for community groups to deliver projects aimed at celebrating the diverse wildlife, important habitats and rich heritage of Sherwood Forest
