This short study analyses and articulates what we really mean when we refer to ‘The Brecks’. Where exactly is the Brecks, what is it like and why is it different to other landscapes in East Anglia and in the UK?Read More
This landscape character assessment (LCA) focuses on the Brecks, a unique landscape of heaths, conifer plantations and farmland on part of the chalk plateau in south-west Norfolk and north-west Suffolk.

This LCAP focusses on heritage conservation in this landscape within the Brecks that research currently indicates has the most pressing set of threats and issues, through a bespoke set of projects delivered by a partnership with a wide range of expertise. It continues the momentum gained through Breaking New Ground’s work in the heart of The Brecks landscape and delivers aims and objectives for The Brecks Fen-Edge & Rivers LP Scheme that can be sustained into the future.Read More

Historic Landscape Characterisation (HLC) mapping provides detailed spatial information about types of land use in today’s landscape, with reference, where possible, to their historical roots. This is done through the building of a digital map
that draws on data in modern and historic maps, aerial photographs and other historic environment information. The flexibility of the digital map enables it to be used in a variety of forms, colours and scales. This enables patterns to be observed and analysed, leading to an enhanced understanding of the origins and development of the landscape.
