Each of these postcards is a copy of a landscape painting by the artist John Hodgson. Together they reconstruct how the Bleasdale area would have looked at six particular points in time. They are interpretations based upon detailed archaeological and environmental data, and are as close as possible to how we understand the landscape to have been shaped over time. As the postcards show, landscape is dynamic, and the main agent of change is human activity, which stretches back over hundreds and thousands of years.

The postcards have been produced as part of the Historic Landscapes of the Forest of Bowland and Lune Valley project, which aims to improve awareness, understanding and management of the historic landscape.
