Village Atlas

The Limestone Landscapes Team has worked with six communities to help them understand how their place developed and what is important within it. We used oral history, maps, archaeology, historic buildings and landscapes and linked these with the geology, streams and wildlife to provide a fuller understanding of how each settlement came to be like it is.
