Settlement Patterns

Nucleated - Clustered and around a social resource (eg. A Church)


Dispersed - Separated from each other. In a typical dispersed settlement it is a number of separated farmsteads


Linear - Along rivers and streams. it has no obvious centre because it is formed beside a transport route, often a single street with houses either side
