Introduction

Cumbria Historic Landscape Characterisation report cover image

The Cumbria and Lake District National Park Historic Landscape Characterisation Project began in 2000. The mapping of the Lake District National Park was completed in 2005, and the mapping for the rest of Cumbria in 2008. The report on the work in the Lake District National Park was published in 2007 and contains much more detailed accounts of the philosophy behind HLC and the project's methodology.

The project was undertaken by the Historic Environment teams of Cumbria County Council and the Lake District National Park Authority (LDNPA) with assistance from the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority and consultants from Archaeoenvironment Ltd and Egerton Lea Consultancy Ltd. The project was funded by English Heritage. The HLC forms part of the Cumbria County Council Historic Environment Record and the Lake District National Park Historic Environment Record.
