About Us

In England and Wales, our finest landscapes have been conserved through designation as National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs).

The East Devon AONB was designated in 1963 and is one of the 46 AONBs situated across the UK. The National Association for Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty provides general information about AONBs. The South West Protected Landscapes Forum operates as a regional voice for the 14 Protected Landscapes which, together, make up 38% of the South West of England.
