High Weald

The Making of the High Weald is one of several pieces of research that underpin the High Weald AONB Management Plan  This report has a long historical view back to the last Ice Age, and seeks to explain the main processes that have created the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.Without understanding these processes we have little chance of understanding the landscape and progressing beyond a superficial and largely subjective aesthetic reaction. The formative processes are inextricably linked to features – such as the prevalence of small woodlands – and the more recent character of these is explored in other research papers.

This report pulls together much of the primary research  undertaken by others with an interest in Sussex, Kent and Surrey.
