The Sheffield Lakeland Landscape Partnership is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund as part of its national landscape partnerships programme. Our Partnership offers a unique opportunity to manage the heritage of the Sheffield Lakeland with a common vision – on a landscape scale and for more people to enjoy.
The north west of Sheffield is an outstanding example of a living landscape, rich in history, with diverse habitats abundant in wildlife, vibrant communities and strong traditions. This ‘Sheffield Lakeland’ area covers 145km2, the central point being close to the village of High Bradfield. The reservoirs form such a distinctive aspect of the landscape that they inspired a bus company in the 1950s to establish bus tours from the city to visit the Sheffield Lakeland. This is a special and unique area, and the work of the Sheffield Lakeland Landscape Partnership seeks to identify, protect and celebrate these qualities.
