Want to start your own heritage project?
Look no further!
The Lincolnshire Limewoods Project has used the experiences of local groups to develop a series of “how to” guides designed to give all the information a group would need when embarking on a new heritage project.
There are four guides in the pack: “Getting Your Project Started”, “Archaeology in Heritage Projects”, “Using Written and Spoken History” and “Presenting your Project”. Each of the guides provides a wealth of information on how to get started, what resources you might need, how to use various types of information and how to present your heritage project. Lots of handy hints and tips are also included, making these an invaluable set of guides to any group, fledgling or experienced. Although developed from groups in the Limewoods area, the content is applicable to any group wishing to develop their own heritage project.
Liz Fleuty, Limewoods Project Officer said “When we started working with local heritage groups through the Limewoods Community Heritage Scheme, it soon became clear that there was a need for more information to point groups in the right direction with regard to developing a project, where to go for funding, what information to include and much more. Each group we worked with highlighted different aspects, so we’ve been able to combine all these to produce a really comprehensive set of guides. We hope that other groups across Lincolnshire and further afield will benefit from the lessons learned by the groups in the Limewoods so that even more projects can be developed to bring local heritage to life.”
