Land at Thorneythwaite Farm, Borrowdale, Cumbria - Historic Landscape Survey Report

Evans, Helen (2017) Land at Thorneythwaite Farm, Borrowdale, Cumbria - Historic Landscape Survey Report. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




In December 2016, following the purchase of the Thorneythwaite Farm landholding (centred NY 248 132), the National Trust commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to produce a landscape history of the property. This was to establish the presence and condition of the archaeological resource, and inform the development of a conservation management strategy. Borrowdale had been subject to a landscape survey by OA North (2007), though this did not include Thorneythwaite. This project will therefore provide an updated record of the National Trust landholdings in the valley. The work was undertaken between December 2016 and March 2017. The project comprised two parts: a desk-based assessment; and landscape reconnaissance and field survey. This latter included aerial photographic modelling of an enclosed settlement identified close to the present farm (Site 15), whilst the desk-based assessment collected and analysed the documentary and cartographic sources relating to Thorneythwaite.
