The PURE Mile is an initiative of the PURE project that encourages communities all over county Wicklow to get involved in looking after a one mile stretch of their local area. Each mile is then entered to the annual PURE mile competition with prizes awarded under headings such as natural and built heritage, litter free miles and community effort. The initiative is a great way of harnessing local goodwill and of raising awareness of the wonderful plants, wildlife, history, stories and heritage along the rural highways and byeways of county Wicklow.
If you have been involved in the PURE mile competition why not add your story and your place to our archive. Register as a user on this website (on the panel to the left) and follow the instructions to send us text, photos, videos, brochures.
