The Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire Wolds form part of a belt of Wold landscapes formed by gently dipping Jurassic rocks which stretch from the Cotswolds to Lincolnshire. The character area extends eastwards between Nottingham and Leicester and includes the large market town of Melton Mowbray. Further south, Rutland Water is a significant feature in this rural, open, mixed farmland landscape with long views from the summits of undulating hills.
