About the Event

FOUW is very happy to announce that Jamie Lund will give the next talk on the above theme in its ‘Understanding Ullswater Evening Talks’ Programme for 2021. Jamie witnessed the build up to the inscription of the Lake District as a UNESCO’s World Heritage Site in 2017. He has been Deputy Chair since 2018 of the WHS Technical Advisory Group which advises the Lake District Partnership how to sustain the Outstanding Universal Value that is unique to the Lake District. 

His talk will illustrate how a concern for landscape conservation within the Lake District led to the founding of the National Trust and inspired the international National Park movement. He will also discuss how the WHS inscription has affected policy and management by the National Trust and the wider Lake District Partnership. Jamie Lund started his career as a field archaeologist and joined the NT in 1998, becoming their survey archaeologist. Between 1998 and 2002 he completed surveys of NT properties in Hawkshead, Coniston and Hartsop. Since then he has advised NT colleagues across the region on cultural heritage. 

Tim Clarke, the Chair of FOUW which is hosting the event said: “Jamie has massive experience in managing NT land for cultural heritage, with extensive knowledge of the Ullswater valley where the NT is a significant landowner. FOUW hopes to develop its relationship with the NT on cultural education issues as well as update knowledge of the cultural heritage in Ullswater, some of which has not been studied since Jamie’s pioneering work in Hartsop 20 years ago.” 

When not at work he spends time with his wife and two daughters on the lakes and fells. He is a keen mountain biker and coaches an U12s girls football team in the South Lakes Girls League. 

Background: The FOUW was created in April 2016 and has been primarily focused since its inception on promoting awareness of the culture heritage around the Ullswater Way. It was granted Charitable status in August 2019. Its current major focus is on establishing a Ullswater Heritage Knowledge Bank and Website.
