Happy New Year!
Happy New Year!

Our review of 2016 shows just what a contribution volunteers make to Landmark’s work. Our open days attracted over 21,000 visitors, many manned in part by volunteers.  At Llwyn Celyn, volunteers have built dry stone walls, planted native species hedges, re-pointed and lime-washed walls, and helped us welcome refugees and other groups.  Lundy and Crownhill Fort also benefited from many volunteers on a varied range of tasks including cleaning Victorian gun barrels, removing ivy from fence posts and tree trunks, rebuilding doors for gun emplacement lockers' cataloguing and sorting the museum archives. Our information room at Belmont was open through the summer, and volunteers gave talks in their local areas about our work.  At our Head Office, all departments benefited from volunteer help at some point during the year. We send  our grateful thanks to everyone who gave their time to assist us.

Now we’re in planning mode for 2017, which will be just as busy. Do have a look at our 2017 Open Days to see if there are any you can help with.  This year, our Open Day theme is MUSIC. We’ll be updating the website with planned events in due course so do keep an eye out – and if you’d like to play yourself or know of a local group that might, do get in touch

New faces at Shottesbrooke:

This month we welcomed two new volunteers to the team at Shottesbrooke to help Jenny with the running of the Friends of Landmark. Abigail and Jessica will be coming in once a week to help run the scheme. A big thank you to Jenny for holding the fort so ably over the past few months. You can find out more about joining the Landmark Friends scheme here.

Update on LC

There has been lots of activity on the site at Llwyn Celyn – you can read the latest news here. Last September we held a Landscape Study Day on site when experts came together to talk about Llwyn Celyn and its location in the Llanthony  Valley.  Subjects included Lines in the Landscape, Artists of the Valley and Re-wilding.  Our Poet in Residence Clare Potter attended the day and has compiled a creative response to it - available via our website. Sign up here for Llwyn Celyn email update if you'd like to stay in touch with work going on.
