A new project is underway called ‘Nenespiration’! The project is exploring people’s aspirations for the Nene Valley over the next 20 years.

The Nene Valley connects the communities between Northampton and Peterborough by the River Nene. Along this stretch of river sees a mix of former industrial towns, rural villages and a cathedral city, with beautiful countryside, rich heritage and wide variety of cultural activities and sports, the Nene Valley really is a good place to live, work and play and its popularity as a destination is increasing.

During Nene Valley Festival 2019, Destination Nene Valley and other Nenescape partners, were out and about at events gathering feedback about what the Nene Valley means to its residents and visitors. Using this feedback and more, Nenescape partners; One to One Development Trust and creators of the 900 Voices of the Nene, will develop a new digital interactive artwork that conveys the aspirations from the Nene Valley.

The results of this project will form part of the 900 voices of the Nene collection, and add another dimension to the online archive. Nenespiration is delivered through Nenescape Landscape Partnership Scheme, thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

The project will be launched in January 2020 and will be shown at public events throughout the year. You can follow the projects progress using the hashtag #nenespiration
