About Us

Our Vision

Set within the countryside of North East England, the Land of Oak & Iron stretches from the fringes of the North Pennines following the course of the River Derwent to the River Tyne.

Our vision is to work with local communities and partners to conserve, enhance and celebrate our natural, industrial and cultural heritage.

With partners, we will deliver a legacy of job creation, tourism, regeneration and economic benefits.
