Over the last six years the stunning Clyde Valley Woodlands National Nature Reserve (NNR) has been transformed. The area has benefitted enormously from the activities and energy of the Clyde and Avon Valleys Landscape Partnership (CAVLP). This HLF Landscape Partnership has enabled a huge amount of ecologically important and imaginative access projects (70 supported projects) to be undertaken across the NNR.
This NNR is unique in its somewhat unusual structure, being comprised of six separate gorge woodlands that stretch from the dramatic Falls of Clyde at New Lanark to the extensive woodlands at Chatelherault. These ancient woodlands are managed in partnership by South Lanarkshire Council, Scottish Wildlife Trust and SNH. This is an example of a true ‘living landscape’, the individual woodlands being intimately wrapped around and linking the towns and villages of the mid Clyde Valley. The geographical and organisational scope of CAVLP has allowed for a collaborative approach to managing these internationally important ash–oak woodlands. More
