Grasslands, woodlands and rivers support a wealth of plants and animals, some of national and even international importance such as the native crayfish. The Natural Area concept allows us to take significant steps forward in. Area profile: 2 Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire Wolds dominated by the Lincolnshire Limestone.

The Vale of Catmose separates the associated with outcrops of Jurassic limestone. In the south, Rutland Water reservoir is an important source of water for. The Southern Lincolnshire Edge is an area of clear character defined by the dramatic limestone cliff to the west and the dip slope that drops gently away to the edge of the fens in the east.

The Kesteven Uplands National Character Area (NCA) is a gently rolling, mixed farming landscape dissected by the rivers Witham and the East and West Glen.

The area lies at the junction of Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Rutland. However, the majority falls within the historic Kesteven district of Lincolnshire which extends.

There is considerable variety in landform across the NCA. The Lincolnshire Limestone Formation is a geological formation in England, part of the Inferior Oolite Group of the Middle Jurassic strata of eastern England.

It was formed around million years ago, in a shallow, warm sea on the margin of the London Platform and has estuarine beds above and below it. The maximum known thickness is metres, at around TF, while Named for: Lincolnshire.

The Lincolnshire Wolds is a range of hills in the county of Lincolnshire, is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and the highest area of land in eastern England between Yorkshire and run roughly parallel with the North Sea coast, from the Humber Estuary in the north-west to the edge of the Lincolnshire Fens in the nates: 53°21′0″N 0°6′0″W / °N.

The Lincolnshire Wolds is a range of hills in the county of Lincolnshire, is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and the highest area of land in eastern England between Yorkshire and run roughly parallel with the North Sea coast, from the Humber Estuary in the north-west to the edge of the Lincolnshire Fens in the south-east.

A new lithostratigraphy is described for the Lincolnshire Limestone Formation (Middle Jurassic) in Lincolnshire and Rutland (Leicestershire). Fundamental to the scheme are two horizons, the bases of the Lincoln and Sleaford Members, which permit county-wide correlation and the subdivision of the formation into three informal units: lower, middle and upper Lincolnshire by: Copper Hill Quarry, Ancaster.

The Wellingborough Limestone thins and loses its character northwards such that it is not recognisable in Rutland, where the formation above the Stamford Member is called the Castle Member (Hudson and Clements, ).

This is approximately equivalent to the ‘Priestland Clay Member’ (Gaunt et al., ) of central Lincolnshire to east Yorkshire. gradually expanded in order to satisfy not only Lincolnshire’s demand for limestone but that of the adjacent counties and areas beyond, including Cambridgeshire (e.g.
