Worcestershire Historic Landscape Characterisation Map

In July 2007, Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service began a two and a half year project, jointly funded by English Heritage and Worcestershire County Council, to characterise the historic landscape of Worcestershire through mapping and associated interpretive material. The Historic Landscape Characterisation Project will form a vital contribution to Worcestershire County Council's move towards a more holistic treatment of environmental issues. It will also supplement and extend the existing Landscape Character Assessment work, and forms part of English Heritage's national programme of Historic Landscape Characterisation.

The overall aim of the project was to digitally record, map and interpret the current historic landscape character of Worcestershire to better inform management strategies and conservation issues at local, regional and national levels and to provide an evidence base for the purposes of a range of forms of spatial planning. Worcestershire HLC output will also directly inform consultation for the County's land management agreements. In addition, the mapping of previous historic landscape character will provide a platform for past-oriented research.
