The historic landscape of Northamptonshire is extremely varied. It contains some of the country's most typically English landscapes with pretty villages and dramatic natural features.
In order to categorise and understand the different landscapes of Northamptonshire, the River Nene Regional Park researched and surveyed the land to create the Northamptonshire Environmental Character and Green Infrastructure Suite.
This suite focuses on the historic landscape character areas (HLCA) of Northamptonshire. It sorts them into twelve different types. These types are divided into the four themes listed below. A brief overview of the twelve landscapes has been provided from the suite.
