Charnwood Forest is a distinctive area of rugged upland landscape towards the north-west of Leicestershire. It is valued for its international geological importance, rich biodiversity, landscape beauty, historical importance, and recreational role. It is also a traditional working landscape with a high proportion of land in agricultural use and, in some parts of the area, mineral working.
Leicestershire County Council has agreed to work with a range of local partners to manage and promote the unique cultural and heritage features of Charnwood Forest, through the development of the Charnwood Forest Regional Park.
