Local Identity

From salty seaside structures to Brunel’s breath-taking bridges, circles of stone to medieval marvels. We want to get the nation talking about the historic places that define us. Our roots, traditions and identities connect us to the places we know and love. 

From spring 2020, we’ll be running a series of events and activities to explore personal connections with local places and to inspire everyone to share why they mean so much.

Horizons that say home, mapped in brick, steel and stone. Cherished and changing.
