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.
