LCT 14: Rolling Brownstone Plateau Farmlands

The Rolling Brownstone Plateau Farmlands LCT is located in the south of
the county and defined by the extent of the underlying sandstone geology of
Brownstone Sandstones, and its elevated topography above the River Wye to
the east. It is bound to the west by the rise in topography to the wooded hills
along the Welsh border. Garren Brook and The Gamber form narrow valleys
that wind through the area.
