An arts and conservation project working on the moors above Keighley has reached the semi-finals of this year's National Lottery Awards.

The Watershed Landscape Project, which works across the entire South Pennines, is one of ten projects in the environment category of the awards.

Over the next few weeks the public can vote on who they think should win the award, and receive a prize of £2,000 to further the project.

Over four years the Watershed Landscape aims to bring the South Pennines uplands to life through conservation, restoration, education and a creative arts initiative.

Initiatives include a project this year at Top Withens, led by photographic artist Simon Warner, who is exploring local people's attitudes towards the landscape, particularly its literary connections, and the result will be an exhibition at the Bronte Parsonage Museum.

On Ilkley Moor volunteers are recording cup and ring stones as part of the CSI (Carved Stones Investigation) Rombalds Moor project, and 2km of paving have been laid to reduce disturbance to ground-nesting birds.

People wishing to vote should phone 0844 836 9699 or visit, before July 22.
