Many people are unaware of the depth and breadth of history shown within local landscapes and how the history shapes the places in which they live or visit.
The ‘Artcodes along the Nene’ project is one of a number of projects within the Heritage Lottery funded Nenescape Landscape Partnership Scheme and will focus on bringing alive the “industrial landscapes”, building on the strong heritage of industry, railways, canals, boats and mills along the Nene.
Artcodes will be used to create a rich and diverse interactive environment that enhances and builds the sense of community in the Nene Valley, bringing hidden heritage alive through innovative digital technologies. The promotion of local heritage and activities will allow people to explore the local area, raising engagement levels and wellbeing of communities close to the river.
More information on the Nenescape Landscape Partnership Scheme and ‘Artcodes along the Nene’ collaboration can be found here, including the Nene Valley giant boot sculpture – a huge Dr Marten boot with a nature theme portraying six special Artcode images of the Nene Valley’s most loved animals, insects and plants.
