Tees-Swale is led by the North Pennines AONB Partnership, with the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, and covers nearly 850km2 of outstanding Protected Landscape. We aim to demonstrate how — by working in tandem with our High Nature Value farmers in particular — we can conserve, restore, expand and connect priority habitats on an unprecedented scale; at the same time, this work will deliver multiple other public benefits including climate change mitigation, flood-risk management and increasing people’s well-being.

This post will lead on the interpretation elements of the ‘Tees-Swale’ programme on behalf of the North Pennines AONB Partnership and the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority.
