Limestone landscape habitats

Welcome to the Limestone Landscapes Partnership

The Magnesian Limestone Plateau is a wide area stretching almost from Tyne to Tees and from the coast to central Durham. The area is unique, with common themes and patterns in the landscape and strong links between natural and cultural heritage.

The Limestone Landscapes Partnership is working with many different people to conserve the landscapes, wildlife and rich heritage of the Magnesian Limestone and enable communities to learn about, enjoy and celebrate their local area.

We have all our projects listed with details of our work. Please have a look and if you want more information please contact us.

We also have a 14 minute film which provides more information about our work.
