Introduction

Lincolnshire Historic Landscape Characterisation (HLC)

The Lincolnshire Historic Landscape Characterisation Project began in October 2008. The aim of the project was to categorise and characterise the landscape of the county with specific reference to its development over time. The archived report describes the methodology and results of the project, including descriptive Character Area Statements designed to provide accessible interpretation of the HLC data. The appendices additionally give a full breakdown of the types and attributes used in the mapping process, and a computer-generated analysis of each Character Area.
