The Lancaster University Archaeological Unit (LUAU), at the request of the Lake District
National Park Authority (LDNPA), undertook a management assessment survey of LDNPA
owned land, on Torver High Common, in April and May 1994. Funding for the project was
provided by English Heritage and LDNPS.
A desk top study assimilated the results of all archaeological work undertaken in the area to
date and the limited available cartographic records of post-medieval extractive industries. The
field work comprised a level 2 (LUAU 1993) survey of 4.16 sqkm of unimproved, unenclosed
moorland on the lower foothills of Coniston Old Man. The digital results of the survey were
combined with digitised topographic detail on a CAD system and a gazetteer of all
archaeological sites was compiled.
