The dataset comprises the Essex HLC report in 4 volumes, a short report, and GIS shapefiles of the HLC types and the wider HLC Areas.

In Essex, desk-based research using modern and historic mapping sources was carried out to identify and map the historic character of the landscape through the application of defined Historic Landscape Character types. This provides a complete coverage of the county with information on current and past landscape origins.
