Limestone Learning Journeys
Derbyshire adult community education service was part of the HLF landscape partnership Limestone Journeys based in the Bolsover area which celebrated the beautiful landscape, amazing history and cultural heritage.
Limestone Journeys was a five-year Heritage Lottery funded scheme which finished at the end of 2015, led by Creswell Heritage Trust, that aimed to celebrate, enhance, conserve and restore the distinctive landscape character of the Derbyshire magnesian limestone, which is mostly located in the Bolsover district.
We provided opportunities for people to gain knowledge and learn new skills using the themes of archaeology, natural history and creativity. We worked with a wide range of people and groups, leading activities including qualification courses, family learning and community learning. Three hundred and fifty courses were delivered with 2,700 learners.
