Landscape Lens Project

The Dedham Vale AONB & Stour Valley Project recently announced that the Landscape Lens project is now live!

This project is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund with 10 fixed-point photography posts installed throughout the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to celebrate over half a century of the area’s protected designation and help people connect with these special landscapes. The project will also help track environmental changes over time, changes in bird populations, landscapes, and monitoring of invasive species – so your photos could make a real difference.

Each post has been placed at locations where natural or human activities cause landscapes to change over time. For example, nature reserves or areas that are under high pressure from visitors. We are delighted that our site at Cattawade is one of the chosen locations so please do take a snap on your next visit!

To get involved all you need to do is: 
– Visit one of the locations
– Place your smart phone in the metal cradle on top of the wooden post
– Take a picture
– Follow the instructions on the post to upload your photo
