The Big Anchor Project is a fun heritage recording initiative which aims to empower public volunteers in the recording of anchors around the world. Via the project website, volunteers are empowered to record the heritage within their community.

In 2017 the NAS raised £2650 for the Big Anchor Project via a Crowdfunder appeal. This money has been used to rebuild the project website.

The NAS would now like to build a project app to allow anchor recording on the go, as well as providing a part time project officer to develop and promote the project; to support and train project volunteers at events; to raise additional grant funding and sponsorship and to facilitate and moderate submissions to the project database.
