Map your valued places

Tell us why the Humberhead Levels matters to you as part of our new project

The Humberhead Levels straddles the borders of Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, where rivers draining 20% of England meet at the Humber Estuary. 

The Humberhead Levels Partnership, chaired by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, is helping to create an internationally renowned, unique network of wetlands in this predominantly agricultural landscape, whilst supporting thriving communities and wildlife.

Do you live near or regularly visit the Humberhead Levels? We're looking for people to tell us about any areas that are of special signifance to them, and why.

For example, do the big, flat open fields that characterise the Humberhead Levels give you a sense of tranquillity? Does cycling the length of New Junction canal path invigorate you?

Take part in our project by adding your special places to an interactive online map, and adding your comments about why you value them so much.

You'll be asked to provide some basic information and choose your local landscape from the list. Select the Humberhead Levels and you will be taken to a map of the area, to which you can add markers identifying the places that are important to you and why they are important.

Launch the interactive map

“Mapping Your Valued Places” has been developed by Natural England along with the Humberhead Levels Partnership and developer ADAS as a way of engaging people in landscape conservation.

The Chair of the partnership’s Land Advisory Working Group, Michael Rogers said:

'We're excited to trial this new online tool. The data we collect will help us to understand better how people interact with the spaces around the Humberhead Levels, if they notice changes in the landscape, and how involved they want to be in decisions affecting the area in the future."

If you have any questions about the tool, please contact Rachael Tulloch:
