The Cumbria Extensive Urban Survey was carried out by Cumbria County Council between 2000 and 2002. The project, part of a national programme of work coordinated by English Heritage, comprised a three-stage survey of the historical and archaeological aspects of each of twenty-three towns selected in Cumbria. The programme aims to re-evaluate the national archaeological resource and to provide comprehensive, rigorous and consistent base-line information against which research, regeneration and land use planning objectives may be set. The programme has three principal outputs: new data added to the Cumbria Sites & Monuments Record, a comprehensive report containing background information on the historical development and current archaeological knowledge of each town, and a strategy report, which outlines recommended management actions.

The project was carried out on behalf of Cumbria County Council who as archaeological advisors on planning matters are responsible for manitaining the County Sites and Monuments Record.
