Tne landscape of the region is characterised by the typically undulating fields and water meadows. The Fynn washes out its meandering valley creating some surprisingly steep little hills and lays many little lanes open to the prospect of winter floods. The absence of really big hills gives some wide vistas and the sky is seen to dominate the whole in the same way as it does in Constable's paintings. So few man-made things impinge on the whole that pylons dominate views and can be seen for mile after mile marching across the fields.Hedgerows remain a feature of the landscape but there are places where they have been uprooted with seeming abandon.
