'The Dales' and Lower Finsthwaite

2009|The Dales and old farming methods

The field here is called The Dales, below which is a group of houses called Lower Finsthwaite. Residents here would have had a strip of ground (a 'dale') for growing crops. Nearby is a wood called 'Wintering Park' - a sheltered woodland pasture for over-wintering sheep and cattle.
