This is a spatial dataset containing polygons representing areas of vegetation mapped within the Moor House National Nature Reserve in the northern Pennines, England. The map was created by staff of The Nature Conservancy in the 1960s.

This map was created by Eddy, A., Welch, D., & Rawes, M. in the early 1960s at the Nature Conservancy's Moor House Field Station (a forerunner of the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology). Note that the reserve has been extended to Upper Teesdale, however this map covers the Moor House area only. The original field survey was mapped on to a base map on the scale of 6 inches to the mile (1:10560). The paper map was digitised by the Institute of Terrestrial Ecology (now the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology) in the 1990s. See online Supporting Information for further details.
