The Chilterns is a landscape which has been shaped by mankind over several thousand years giving it a special historic character. Today we experience an environment shaped by prehistoric farmers, medieval lords and peasants, the gentry's garden designers and Victorian surveyors. The Chilterns Historic Landscape Characterisation project has for the first time mapped changes across the whole of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty providing information to enrich our appreciation of the area's special character.

This report summarises the study's approach and its findings, and also shows how information can be used to care for this wonderful asset for the benefit of current and future generations. We urge all organisations and individuals with a responsibility for the Chilterns landscape to take heed of this study when planning for the future.
