Heritage Training

We are providing training to ensure that the Bay's communities can learn to look after, protect and celebrate their heritage, long into the future, so that it is there for future generations to enjoy.

We are passing on new heritage skills, helping local communities to get involved with projects, such as community archaeology, providing botanical surveying training, and offering local businesses the opportunity to use the Bay's heritage to boost their business and attract more people to our stunning area.

Upcoming training opportunities:

  • Innocent Guides - to improve the visitor experience and support a better visitor welcome - book now!
  • Community Archaeology - largely through on-site activities: field-walking, ground-truth and archaeological surveying
  • Adopt a Monument - local support in delivery of conservation management plans
  • Oral History - capturing and celebrating traditional fishing practices and creating new local history educational records from inter-generational work
  • Maritime heritage community survey - creating new records and community exhibitions
  • Museums Archive work to capture the records created by the Scheme projects and make them widely available
  • Botanical, marine, invertebrate, habitat surveys and research on grey seals - to inform conservation measures
  • Palaeo-environment studies to ensure that important finds, currently vulnerable to erosion and loss, are recorded
  • Volunteer training, including leaders programme to recognise the training and development needs of volunteers through a structured programme
  • Support to a network of volunteers to manage maintenance and support introductory rides on the Bay Cycle Way
  • Developing a network of “Natural Ambassadors” to protect and celebrate the natural heritage
  • Specialist Landowners and Land managers mentoring - to provide a mechanism to support farmers with the processes of delivering agri-environment scheme outcomes. This will help overcome the barriers to entry and support further economic benefits accruing from wildlife. Many farms have agriculturally difficult areas that fit well with these schemes, which help in supporting farm businesses in a different way.
