Investment for historic Crags

HISTORIC Creswell Crags is to receive £1.9 million of investment over the next five years in a bid to make the area “more accessible, inclusive and enjoyable for local communities”.

Bolsover Council has approved the Creswell Heritage Trust’s The Limestone Journeys Scheme.

The project is backed by cash from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the council has helped match-fund a range of the projects.

Coun Ann Syrett, Bolsover Council cabinet member for social inclusion, said: “This is a very positive scheme.”

Communities will be invited to get involved in projects such as improvements to walks and trails, tree and bush planting, a series of walking and cycling sessions and a range of practical and educational activities to improve the area.
