Introduction

Image from the report

Historic Landscape Assessment (HLA) seeks to identify and as far as possible understand the historic development of today's landscape. It places emphasis on the contribution that past historic processes make to the character of the landscape as a whole, not just selected 'special sites' and can contribute to a wider landscape assessment. This will help to guide decisions on its future change and management. It is important to ensure that the landscape evolves in a way that leaves it as rich and diverse in the future. The currently available data was based on a rapid countywide exercise to produce broad patterns of historic landscape character derived from maps and aerial photographs. It was not intended to represent a detailed field by field definition of historic character, but to offer a countywide view.
