A desktop assessment was undertaken in July 2000 of the site of the proposed wind farm at
Whinash Farm, near Tebay, Cumbria (centred at NGR SD 360 815) by Lancaster University
Archaeological Unit (LUAU), on behalf of the Renewable Development Company (RDC)
The study area is predominantly open moorland and has been subject to very little
development since the mid nineteenth century, when the earliest maps of the area were
compiled (Ordnance Survey 1st edition map (1863)). The desk-based study identified a
number of sites both within the assessment area as well as immediately adjacent to it,
including quarries, as well numerous sites relating to the pastoral economy of the area, for
example sheepfolds, a bield and a possible medieval shieling. In general the more significant
archaeology is contained within the adjacent valleys of Bretherdale and Borrowdale, rather
than the unimproved moorland that forms the majority of the study area.
