The Darent Valley is a complex and intricate landscape and for some time it has been an aspiration of local groups to have detailed data to be able to interrogate and explore it. A LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) survey has been commissioned to provide this information and support better understanding of the landscape and layers of history.

A volunteer-led landscape investigation team will then be formed who will be trained to go out in the field and ground-truth features, investigating and recording them on the online portal. These heritage features will then form an important dataset which will supplement the Historic Environment Record and enhance our knowledge of the valley.
