The East Midlands has a proud and distinct farming history. Combine is an exciting creative heritage project that aims to capture and promote the people, places and traditions that define the region’s rich agricultural past.

Combine will focus on six historic farms – one in each of the region’s six counties: Derbyshire, Leicestershire, LincolnshireNottinghamshire, Northamptonshire and Rutland. It will bring together a unique mix of people to research, record and share these unique histories with local communities and the wider public.

You can find out more about the project on our About page.
