New website promoting the Ouse Washes Landscape just launched!


Wednesday 24 December 2014



The Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership (OWLP), supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, has just launched its new website.

Come and find out what makes the Ouse Washes Landscape special! This new website is intended to be a ‘one-stop shop’ for local people and visitors to explore the Ouse Washes Landscape, to find out what is special about the landscape, where to go and what to do.

The site features an interactive map, showing tourist attractions and important landmarks in the area, an events calendar highlighting local events, plus extensive information about the area’s heritage. Furthermore it features information about all OWLP projects to be carried out until 2017 and how people can get involved with the planned events, activities and volunteering opportunities. Through our regularly updated ‘Ouse News’ section anyone can keep up to date of all new events, partnership and project development and information about the OWLP area.

Kirsten Bennett, Chief Executive of Cambridgeshire ACRE, the lead partner of the OWLP scheme, says: “This new OWLP website is an excellent resources of information for communities in and around the Ouse Washes Landscape area to find out about their own history, heritage and biodiversity and is a one-stop shop for finding out about opportunities for anyone to get more involved with this unique environment. This website is the first of its kind promoting the area as a distinct landscape with its unique and precious heritage and fills a major gap in information provision for local communities.”
