The Royal Society of Arts has commented that
Networked heritage means having sufficient connections in a place for heritage to be understood as and treated as a common public resource — drawn upon and enhanced by the full diversity of citizens and organisations. The role of the heritage sector will still include facilitating access to heritage assets, but it is by enabling others to integrate heritage into their thinking and their actions that networked heritage can have a transformative impact on people and places, helping communities create heritage for themselves.
This site aims to provide access to a heritage network and material to enable people to begin to understand how societies and their practices have developed over time in this upland area of England.
