Century of Change

It encourages local communities to get involved in projects that celebrate the diverse wildlife, important habitats and rich heritage of Sherwood Forest.

Miner2Major focusses on the heart of the Sherwood Forest area from Nottingham to Ollerton, and Mansfield to Rufford Abbey, an area that has a distinctive landscape character, which is recognised and valued by local people, as well as visitors from around the world.

Century of Change is one of eight projects within Miner2Major, being delivered over a three-year period. Century of Change is for local primary schools. It will support them to work in partnership with heritage and community groups, artists and heritage venues to explore the legacy of the Century of Change (1850 to 1950). A key outcome of the project will be high quality learning resources and experiences that explore the Forest’s heritage, focusing on:

  • Gardens
  • Mills
  • Mines
  • Transport
  • Impact of War
