10 September 2012
In August 2011 Discovering Places launched this blog as a means of sharing all the amazing places we were discovering. We very shortly started inviting the members of The Heritage Alliance and our Discovering Places partners to contribute on each monthly theme. It has grown in it readership and the standard and has become the most amazing collection of places to discover that you can find on line (I think anyway). We also had some wonderful individuals who contributed each month on their adventures as they responded to our call to action.
I have personally worked on this project for the last 3 years taking it concept to 3 UK wide engagement projects and more. I am so proud of what we have achieved with this blog as it is a wonderful snapshot of the UK’s Hidden Gems. For the final 3 weeks of the blog we’ll be reposting our favourite blog posts.
My thanks to all those who gave us their time and wrote blogs for us, shared their beautiful images with us and most of all invited the rest of the UK to come and discover what was on their doorstep.
From all the Discovering Places team, your call to action this week and beyond is to keep discovering your built, historic and natural environments.
