Landscape

Our landscape has been created by generations of communities whose culture and livelihoods have been built within these fells.

 

As a group we manage and protect several Special Sites of Scientific Interest a well as historical sites such as the Gamelands stone circle and the Roman Road which runs through this area.  There is also numerous evidence of Bronze age sites as well as the remains of a Roman fort.  

 

The lime kilns built to create lime to put on the land are visible across our group's land, evidence of agriculture developing in this area.  We are also responsible for the upkeep of 61,000 meters of dry stone walls which require annual repair and rebuilding, keeping alive traditions which have been passed down through generations.
