Bright Water

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.

Update – 31/08/2017
The Development Phase of the Bright Water project is fast drawing to a close and the project proposals will be submitted to the Heritage Lottery Fund. From autumn 2017 until spring 2018 this means that there will be no dedicated staff in post and there will be a pause in activity on the ground whilst the project proposal is considered by HLF.

The Bright Water website will feature any news and updates whilst the project is being assessed ready for the start of the delivery phase (fingers crossed) in spring 18. It may seem a long time ahead but it really isn’t – we will be back soon!

In the meantime, if you wish to put forward your name to participate in any of our proposed activities, contact Bright Water via DWT. Your may not hear back from us for some time but your details will be passed on the new Delivery Team for action in the Spring.

If you are looking for information on the project or the area it covers visit the Bright Water website at Here you will find a number of interesting articles and downloadable resources.

Thank you for your interest and here’s to an exciting 2018 and the launch of the Bright Water Project.
