For the first time the UK’s AONB Family has come together to organise a 10 day programme of events to help people enjoy and be inspired by the UK’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs). Starting on Saturday 19th September and continuing through to Sunday 27th September, the events can be found on www.landscapesforlifeevents.org.uk. There are over 80 and counting!
As Jill Smith from the National Association for AONBs explains:
“Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are some of the most beautiful and cherished landscapes in the UK. They are vibrant landscapes which offer a wealth of opportunities for everyone to enjoy them. They are Landscapes for Life in so many different ways.
“Outstanding Week is an opportunity for you to get involved and get out into our AONBs’ outstanding landscapes to enjoy country shows, dark sky discovery nights, walking festivals, archaeology walks, wood fairs, foraging and local food festivals, wildlife walks, coastal and marine days, thatching courses, drystone walling competitions, charcoal making, bioblitz, inspiration through art and music and many, many other activities.
Events are being organised throughout the country so please join us for an Outstanding Week!”
Events taking place in the Chilterns during Outstanding Week include open days at Lacey Green Windmill near Princes Risborough and a guided walk to learn about local history in Amersham.
