Welcome to Furness Hidden Heritage

We are dedicated to exploring the wonderful and eclectic heritage of the Furness Peninsula in South Cumbria, not far from the Lake District. From prehistoric landmarks to industrial sites the area has something for everyone.

Through the Hidden Heritage Blog we delve into these varying historic sites with quality researched information and beautifully shot images. This is brought together to give the reader a sense of the amazing heritage this small part of the world has to offer and how turly vast and varied the tales of this place are.

In more recent times the blog has started to look at hidden heritage a little further a field in the Cumbria area with sites like the intreguing fairy steps at Beetham to the medieval courthouse at Hawkshead. These posts can be found by clicking here.

Alongside all this we are also exploring the history of the area in our breathtaking new 'Heritage from the air' video series, where we take to the sky to view some stunning historic sites from a different perspective. This can really showcase the scale of these sites in a way that is difficult to capture from ground level.
