Very general info only, not seeing anything there about how to actually use Lidar as claimed and includes a broken link too! So not really surprised that you haven't figured it out?
Here's some info about Lidar. https://gisgeography.com/lidar-light-de ... d-ranging/
There are several online sites showing Lidar data for the UK, some better than others. But [https://houseprices.io/lab/lidar/map] seems about the best.

Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Hello I say that as sat in my campervan working away from home for the British Army, and had a few drinkipoos 🍻😂 I find lidar to be useless, I can see as much detail on google maps if I'm honest, what I would like to know is, I see peeps putting maps up to digs, and there are balloons etc on the maps with roman fort, villa, iron age settlements etc etc etc, and wondering where they get them from Archi UK per chance ? And if so guessing you have to subscribe, I got a 1300 acre permission down here nr Beverley and dying to find a link to the balloons lol I laugh as I just opened another can 👀😊 I'm not in till 11

That initial link looks very good (but to late at night to check indetail).

I have found LIDAR to be of limited use, but it all depends what is on your permissions as some have found it useful and shown features that can not be seen on Google Earth or on the ground.

Also remember that sadly not all of the country is covered by LIDAR.

Try https://www.heritagegateway.org.uk/Gateway/
Type in say 'Beverley East Riding', it shows 3911 results of Humber Historic Environment Records, some really old/ some newer. Often you can view them on the map if available but not these so have to scroll down the list. :)
(Edit: I don't think the map view is working anyway!)

Or Pastscape, it's now unsupported but can view the balloons on maps! :lol:
