Skills for Ingleborough

Aim: People have the knowledge and training to maintain, restore, manage and celebrate the heritage of the Ingleborough Dales

How: Training opportunities will be provided to increase the heritage skills and knowledge of local communities and partners, and to increase the resource available for heritage conservation work in the Ingleborough Dales. Local young people will gain land management and conservation qualifications and go on training placements with local contractors and organisations. Dry stone wallers will be able to recognise and rebuild local and historical wall styles and features. Cave guides and leaders will be better able to raise the public’s awareness of cave geology, geomorphology, hydrology, ecology, cave archaeology, and conservation issues, and provide a better experience for their customers.
