The de Merode forests

 

019-film-merode

In 2004 the Flemish government bought the de Merode forests from the princes of de Merode. Since then the Vlaamse Land Maatschappij (Flemish Land Agency) works on the enhancement of the landscape, nature and heritage in the region and the involvement of the people living and recreating in the area. This film gives an overview of the de Merode forests.

Audomarois - Between land and water

020-film-audmarois

The region Audomarois in France is the most eastern region of the Parc Naturel Régional de Caps et Marais d'Opale. It is a region rich in water, nature and heritage. The film is a historical account of how this typical landscape came into being. While the text is in French the images provide a nice overview of the polders, the grasslands, the hedges that form the bocage landscape and much more - and of course of the people who live between land and water.

The History of the Ashdown Forest

203-highweald

The High Weald is a valuable historic landscape in the densely populated south east of England and an essentially rural area in the vicinity of London. The landscape still looks medieval and that is one of the reasons why the High Weald is protected as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and that its natural beauty and its historic character are enhanced.

High Weald Hidden History

204-highweald

The High Weald has a unique, radiating network of ancient routeways and tracks. These routes were first formed when early settlers from the surrounding lands began to exploit the area's woods as a seasonal source of food for their animals: for, as well as timber and fuel, the woods held another important resource - acorns!

High Weald - the Iron Story

It is hard to picture the former iron industry in today's countryside of small fields, woodlands and steep, narrow, gill valleys. But in this landscape exist all the necessary raw materials that allowed iron to be smelted for over 2,000 years.
