Abstract

The present report outlines the results of a landscape survey of National Trust holdings and covenanted land in Buttermere, Cumbria, which comprise an area approximately 52.5km² in extent (centred on NY 170 170). This report incorporates survey work undertaken by The National Trust and the Lake District National Park Authority with teams of volunteer surveyors from the Lorton and Derwent Fells Local History Society during March and April 2008, in addition to landscape survey undertaken by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) between March and May 2008 and documentary research undertaken by OA North. The aim of the study was to produce a comprehensive record of the remains of archaeological interest within the valley and to provide analysis of the development of the landscape. The study also included an assessment of the survival and condition of the archaeological resource within the valley and this report provides management recommendations for the long-term preservation of the resource.
