The Cumbrian Voices website is a collection of recordings of different Lakeland characters detailing their lives and interests. Taken from The Lakeland Dialect Society's Sound & Video Archive many of these recordings were made more than forty years ago and have now been preserved in MP3 and MPEG4 digital format. The original recordings were collected by members of the Dialect Society, on gramaphone records, open reel tapes and tape cassettes.

They form a fascinating and rare social history.
