Our county remains predominately rural, with a wide variety of English lowland landscapes.

It contains much of the best quality agricultural land in England.  It is a sensitive and fragile landscape of gently rolling clay or limestone hills in the west and south falling to flat open Fen in the north and east. Wide river valleys with extensive meadows meander across this gentle landscape. Reflecting this variety, the villages and market towns also display widely different character.
