Discusses the 1984 study review by the Department of theEnvironment of existing knowledge regarding landslipping in GreatBritain. Reviews the background to the study and presents some of thegeneral results. Concludes that knowledge of landslide distribution,character and significance remain surprisingly poor, that old ancientlandslides are much more widely distributed in the landscape thanpreviously thought, and that such old features present an importantpotential threat to buildings and structures because they can bereactivated if disturbed. Suggests that heightened perception oflandslide hazard will lead to greater consideration of ground stabilityprior to developments, including increased use of various types ofsurvey techniques that exist, and delimit areas of actual and potentialinstability.
