50th Anniversary - marking our designation birthday
The Dedham Vale AONB has its 50th birthday since its designation this year. The purpose of the designation, to conserve and enhance natural beauty, remains as at least as important today as it did in 1970. The vision for the next 50 years must be to maintain these outstanding landscapes, support projects to address wildlife decline and encourage people from all sections of society to enjoy the benefits derived from them
The AONB team have been awarded a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to deliver a series of projects to celebrate the anniversary and give everybody the opportunity to share the wonders of the area.
