March—April 2016, Derwent Valley, Derbyshire The DerwentWISE Landscape Partnership has embarked on a three year project to survey over 1,000 heritage assets within the Lower Derwent Valley. This Heritage at Risk project will provide a significant step forward in preventing the further loss of historic buildings, monuments and features. The project aims to survey and record the many attributes that contribute to the outstanding universal value of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site and its surroundings, and enable these findings to be included in the Historic Environment Record (HER) hosted by Derbyshire County Council. Community volunteers will be trained to undertake surveys of their local heritage sites, and help protect these sites for the future.  A number of training courses will be held throughout 2015—17 in the Lower Derwent Valley.
