Lake District Field Names
A Guide for Local Historians
Angus J. L. Winchester
The names of individual fields can help us to understand how the rural landscape has evolved over the centuries.
Originally coined to identify a field by capturing what was distinctive about it, field-names often record how a field was used in the past, what it looked like or who owned it. Recorded on old maps and sometimes preserved in the memory of older residents, field-names provide fascinating raw material for local history.
