Pennine Prospects

With its distinctive landscape, rich in social and industrial heritage – and its moorlands of international importance for wildlife – the South Pennines area is a special place.

Yet the South Pennines area is the only upland landscape in England not to have the benefit of designated landscape status – such as National Park or Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) – with the protection and resources that this brings.

Pennine Prospects was formed in 2005 to act as a champion for the area and coordinate regeneration activity that will conserve and enhance the landscape and heritage, whilst improving opportunities for the communities that live in the nearby towns and cities to enjoy and appreciate the area.
