Bright Water Landscape Partnership



The Bright Water Landscape Project is a Heritage Lottery Fund supported project that aims to reveal, restore and celebrate the heritage of the Bright Water area. This includes its built, natural and cultural heritage. The project will run from the beginning of 2018 to the end of 2021, by which time almost £3m will have been invested in our heritage.

The Bright Water Landscape Partnership is led by Durham Wildlife Trust and Durham County Council. Our other partners include; the Environment Agency, Darlington Borough Council, the Tees River Trust, Highways England, Network Rail, AASDN and various community and local history societies.

As part of the Development Phase of this project, the partnership have commissioned a number of specialist studies of the Bright Water area.
