The Avon Historic Landscape Characterisation was undertaken by members of staff employed by the former county of Avon (later under the sponsorship of South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and Bath and North East Somerset Councils) between 1995 and 1998. The main aim was to produce a map which displayed the current (1998) character of the landscape by revealing the historic processes whereby the present plan form of the current landscape had been initiated and developed.
