Helping to discover, protect and celebrate the Carneddau.

The Carneddau Landscape Partnership is a 5-year scheme (2020-2025) supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, hosted by the Eryri National Park Authority, and consists of over 20 organisations, working together to help conserve the natural and cultural heritage of the Carneddau mountains and valleys.
Engaging people and communities
We are helping people and communities surrounding the Carneddau to connect with the landscape, through learning about nature, history, how we have shaped the area, but also how it has shaped us.
Protecting special qualities
The Carneddau is rich in wildlife and steeped in history. We aim to protect not only the natural environment but also better understand and share how people have used and lived in the Carneddau over thousands of years.
Celebrating living heritage
We want to tell the story of the Carneddau through sharing cultural knowledge, from folklore to the significance of archaeological monuments, celebrating local traditions, ensuring the persistence of native place names, and recording people’s stories before they are lost.
