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

The small-scale heritage features survey will be ongoing from March to August 2022 (inclusive). It will involve small groups of volunteers surveying small-scale heritage features in 7 settlements in the Westmorland Dales. Each settlement will take 2 or 3 days to survey.

So what are small-scale heritage features? They are small scale and utilitarian heritage features that can contribute to a sense of place. Examples include sign posts, churn stands, wells, stepping stones and lots more.

No experience is necessary as virtual training will be provided in advance as well as during the survey. (All equipment will also be provided.)
