Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership launches ‘Mapping Past’ project

posted in: News | 0

This weekend I went to the launch of the ‘Mapping the Past’ project at Carluke and Cleghorn Roman Fort.

This project is being run as part of The Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership (CAVLP), a Heritage Lottery Fund supported programme which aims to conserve, enhance and celebrate the unique landscape and cultural heritage of the Clyde and Avon Valleys.  As such, it is a programme which has many synergies with Discovering the Clyde.

This year CAVLP are concentrating on two heritage projects: ‘Mapping the Past’ and ‘Capturing the Past’.  Over the past few weeks we have been having a number of meetings with them to look at how we can work together on projects over the coming months.  Watch this space for updates!

The launch event for ‘Mapping the Past’ featured the return of Major General Roy to his birthplace, just south of Carluke.  As this video shows, he was persuaded to resurvey nearby Cleghorn Roman Fort!
