The original stimulus to writing about walking the landscape of the upper Eden valley in east Cumbria, England, came from occupying a house close to an early modern (circa 1550) drystone field wall. The wall was well constructed and included some untypical flat capstones. Closer study revealed it to be the remains of a deer wall emparkment which had survived almost intact in some places for over 450 years. This led to the discovery of a wider upland landscape with many fascinating features particular to this part of northern England - the old county of Westmorland. Further research is ongoing and currently I am looking at the nineteenth century tithe maps of the area with the intention of reproducing some of them along with their aportionments which describe the owner and occupier for each field within a township.
