Click on the link above to access the raw LiDAR data from the survey done early 2016 by the Environment Agency via Dropbox. Click the images below for larger versions to see the lidar data as manipulated by Steve Malone of Trent and Peak Archaeology, which makes sense of the raw data. The large image covers the whole area of the LiDAR survey, the smaller ones focus just on the area around Under Whitle.
