It may be tempting to assume that the Quaternary history of the English Lake District, a popular venue for school and university field trips, is well established.
This is far from being the case, unfortunately, despite a long history of research (e.g. Marr, 1916; Manley, 1959; Pennington, 1976; Sissons, 1980) and many
advances in our understanding since the QRA last held its Annual Field Meeting in the Lake District in 1994 (see Boardman and Walden, 1994). This field guide reviews some recently-published work and reports on ongoing investigations in the area, as well as identifying topics and areas for further research.
