Welcome to the Layered Landscapes website, making available historical and archaeological records from across the Stiperstones and Corndon Landscape Partnership Scheme area.

12 areas have been carefully selected across these borderland area of Wales and Shropshire to showcase the many layers of history you will find in these landscapes – from Neolithic and Bronze Age burial mounds to the impressive ramparts of Iron Age hillforts, to scattered industrial remains associated with their much more recent past.

This website will allow you to explore 3D maps of each area (using LiDAR data), finding out about these fascinating sites – using records from Shropshire’s Historic Environment Record and Shropshire Archives. We have chosen these records carefully to provide you with a summary of what you might find – but there’s plenty to explore from your desktop, as well in the field to. You will find links on this website to this further information.
