University of Cumbria doctoral researcher Ellie Evans, affiliated with UoC's Cultural Landscapes theme, presented initial results of her research into the management of outdoor heritage sites in Cumbria, designing and testing a method at the following locations: Ambleside Roman Fort, Castlerigg Stone Circle, Kendal Castle, Long Meg & Her Daughters Stone Circle, Shap Abbey. Ellie’s data collection has included measuring changes at heritage sites using drone photography and photogrammetry, and monitoring visitor footfall and other factors to investigate the impacts of various management techniques, including positioning of signage and pathways.

Ellie Evans is a PhD student at the University of Cumbria, in Ambleside. Having graduated from Cardiff University (MSc Conservation Practice) Ellie wanted to further explore the conservation of outdoor heritage sites and how to monitor them. This PhD research is investigating if repeated 3D recording of outdoor heritage sites can be used to assess the conservation needs of such sites. The research also looks into visitor numbers and their routes around sites to see what influence visitors to sites have.
