Nottinghamshire County Council and its partners have been awarded a National Lottery grant of £2.4m for From Miner to Major: The Real Sherwood Forest. Local communities will be given the skills and knowledge to look after the landscape, through restoring vital heathland, protection and conservation of ancient trees. Local history projects will map Sherwood over the past 100 years.
The historic Sherwood Forest area covered much of Nottinghamshire north of the Trent and the project area stretches from Bestwood village in the south to Edwinstowe and the National Nature Reserve in the north; and from Mansfield and Ashfield in the west to Ollerton in the east.
