Landscape and Built Environment

Landscape  The parish landscape is expertly classified and described in Natural England's National Character Area Profiles; our area profile  falling in NCA117, Avon Vales.  The English Nature web site has an excellent up-to-date interactive PDF document which can be downloaded from the NCA117 page link above.  The Statements of Environmental Opportunity contained within this document will have some consideration in the neighbourhood plan.  The current neighbourhood plan landscape analysis can be viewed here.  

‚ÄčBuilt environment  The built environment of the parish of Seend contains a wide range of vernacular architecture.  Some of this architecture, from the 17th to the 19th century, is referenced in 'Seend - a Wiltshire Village Past and Present' by Edward Bradby.  The defined conservation area in Seend protects the mainly stone and rubblestone built core of the old settlement area.  There are no defined conservation areas in Seend Cleeve or Sells Green.
