The Pumphouse

The PumphouseCurrent Pumphouse

The opportunity to renovate this former steelworks pumphouse as the base for the Living Valleys region.

With a development grant from BIG Lottery CAT2 programme, we are currently progressing proposals to renovate this building to provide a base for our Living Landscape work in the Valleys region.

If we can raise the funding, people will be able to:

  • Learn how to manage land to benefit wildlife and communities (and gain qualifications if they want)
  • Find out about volunteering, training and work experience in the local area
  • Enjoy events, speakers, film and music nights
  • Hire space for working, meeting and training
  • Appreciate the views and spot wildlife with a nice coffee and maybe a bit of dinner
  • Hire our Explorer Packs to get a bit closer to nature nearby
  • Buy wildlife products like garden bird, hedgehog and duck food, bird nesting boxes and books
  • Link to other charities, e.g. Food Banks
