Abstract

Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was invited by the Lake District National Park Authority (LDNPA) and The National Trust to compile a heritage resource assessment within the catchment of Lake Windermere. The primary aim of this part of this assessment was to collate all readily available historical and archaeological information to provide the client with data that will facilitate and inform the development of Reflections on History, part of the wider Windermere Reflections. Windermere Reflections is itself
only part of the Windermere Catchment Restoration Program which aims to improve water quality in the catchment, in addition to promoting and improving understanding of
the natural and historic heritage resource within this area.
The work was primarily desk-based, and involved the production of GIS datasets, achieved by enhancing the existing Historic Landscape Characterisation and data from the Lake District National Park Historic Environment Record and National Trust Sites and Monuments Record for the catchment. This facilitated the production of a report
comprising a non-technical summary of the assessment, its methodology, and a detailed assessment of the development and heritage of the study area with respect to the three key
themes of woodland, water and minerals.
