In etymology the word ‘landscape’ associates people with place, with ‘land’ meaning both a place and the people living there and ‘scape’ derived from words meaning to shape, through association or partnership (Whiston Spirn 1998, p. 16). The concept of landscape is reinforced through English legislation for areas within designated landscapes such as National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), but is more broadly applied throughout all landscapes within Europe, where the European Landscape Convention (ELC) has been ratified. The ELC views landscape as “an area, as perceived by people, whose character is the result of the action and interaction of natural and/or human factors” (CoE 2000, Ch.1, Art.1).
