About the Landscapes of the AONB
The topography, geology and vegetation, and the ways they have evolved with the climate and human usage, come together to form the landscapes we experience around us today.
All landscapes have character; however, that character is more substantial, obvious, and extensive in the especially important Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We use characteristics and qualities to describe and assess those cherished landscapes.
