Between Blackpool Bridge and Mallards Pike stretches a steeply wooded valley followed by the Blackpool Brook and a dis-used light railway. Largely inaccessible, the area features remnants of past industry (coal & iron mines and limestone quarrying) and remnants of the buildings, railways, reservoirs built to support and protect these activities. It also contains evidence of freemining and commoning from the present. The project aims to facilitate public access, allowing visitors to move through the visually inspiring landscape and conserve the archaeology along the route. The project will also look at ancient routes such as the Dean Road that increase access to the valley.
