The Lancaster University Archaeological Unit (LUAU), at the request of the Lake District
National Park Authority (LDNPA) and North-west Water Ltd, undertook an identification,
historical and archaeological survey of the Thirlmere Estate. The fieldwork took place over
15 days between 29th April and 17th May.
A desk top study assimilated the results of all archaeological work undertaken in the area to
date and examined documentary, cartographic and aerial photographic evidence for
archaeological monuments and landscapes within the estate. An identification survey was
undertaken of the study area; this involved systematic field walking with sites located using
a Global Positioning System technology (GPS). The digital results of the survey were
combined, on a CAD system, with digital topographic detail supplied by LDNPA. A
gazetteer of all archaeological sites was compiled.
