The Fifth Continent is a programme of heritage and environment projects in the Romney Marsh. All of the projects aim to help residents understand how different environmental and human factors work together to produce the landscape that we see today in the Marsh.

With this enhanced understanding, we hope that farmers and landowners learn to value their environmental and heritage assets more and recognise the consequences of any proposed changes to land-use or agricultural practices.

Ultimately, our guidance will have helped landowners improve their own conservation work, and enable greater enjoyment by local people.
