In Autumn 2016, the National Trust commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to survey an early settlement site on the western side of The Tongue, a natural spur of land between two streams, on Troutbeck Park Farm, near Windermere (NY 42259 06797 (centred)). The survey was required to establish the condition and extents of several Scheduled Monuments within the study area, two of which are currently on the Historic England Heritage at Risk Register due to threats to their survival from vegetation growth. The survey was therefore intended to record and evaluate the condition of archaeological and historical features to inform land management and a programme of vegetation control.
The survey was undertaken in February 2017 as a Level 1 identification survey across a 1.56 square kilometre study area within the landholding. In addition, more detailed Level 2 survey was undertaken on the area surrounding the scheduled settlement/enclosures on the western flank of The Tongue (NHLE 1007201), which includes the area of settlement and also a cairnfield which extends across the western flank.
