Nottinghamshire Historic Landscape Characterisation (HLC)

The Nottinghamshire Historic Landscape Characterisation project was undertaken by Nottinghamshire County Council, with funding from English Heritage. The project followed on from the county’s Countryside Appraisal and aimed to produce a Historic Landscape Character map for the whole county (excluding urban areas). This was achieved by analysing and plotting a number of identifiable landscape types, as observed in modern field patterns and land use. The final product was a set of GIS files for the various landscape categories and a report describing the project and its outcome.
