An archaeological assessment was undertaken in March 1999 of the proposed wind farm at Stribers
Bank, to the south of Backbarrow, Cumbria (centred at NGR SD 360 815) (Fig 1) by Lancaster
University Archaeological Unit (LUAU), on behalf of Dulas Ltd. A further phase of field walking
was undertaken in September 2000, in order to examine the proposed access tracks.
The desk-based study established that this upland area was the subject of parliamentary enclosure, in
the late eighteenth / early nineteenth centuries, and prior to this the area was open common. The
desk-based study identified a number of sites around the edges of the study boundary, including a
barkpeeler's hut and a charcoal pitstead, but only one site was documented within the study area, a
gravel pit (Site 05).
