About

The Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) is a tranquil, beautiful and relatively isolated landscape on the Devon and Somerset border. It has been protected as an AONB since 1991, and there are many local groups willing to care for this wonderful place. But they need your help to put their ideas into action.

The Blackdown Hills Countryside Fund is a new fund, launched in Autumn 2013. The purpose of the Fund is to…

“support the natural beauty and communities of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”

It will do this by providing funding to local people, community groups and local organisations to deliver projects that benefit and/or celebrate the natural, cultural and/or built heritage of the area and its communities.
