How do I use the character information for a site which sits on the boundary between two Landscape Description Units?
Adjacent landscapes with different characteristics will merge into each other in different ways. For instance when an unwooded plateau drops sharply away to a wooded 45 degree valley slope, the boundary between the two landscape types is sharp and very apparent. Conversely, an unsettled plateau may merge into a plateau with a dispersed settlement pattern over a much larger area, and the boundary may be much less apparent. A site visit or look at the 1:25000 OS map for the site may be able to help you find out which Landscape Descriptions Units your site falls into, especially if the change in landscapes is a sharp one. However if after an inspection of the map and a site visit, you are still not, sure, its best to look at the information for both Landscape Descriptions Units and decide which characteristics apply to your site.
