Westmorland Dales Landscape Partnership

The Westmorland Dales Landscape Partnership Scheme aims to unlock and reveal the hidden heritage of the Westmorland Dales, enabling more people to connect with, enjoy and benefit from this inspirational landscape. Thanks to National Lottery players it has been supported by a grant from the Heritage Fund

Sign Up to our mailing list to receive our latest news, events and volunteering opportunities.

Come and talk to us about your experiences with Fell Ponies and the Commons, as part of a commons heritage project.

One of the Westmorland Dales projects, called ‘Our Common Heritage’, is collecting and archiving oral history interviews with people from across the area who currently (or in the past) have kept animals  on the common; the Fell Pony is a key component of this.

Contact [email protected] to book a slot with us between 10am – 4pm at the Old Courthouse, Shap on Friday 26th August. It would be wonderful to record your experiences.
