Abstract

Calderdale Council approved a series of geotechnical investigations to facilitate a full design for a wind farm on Todmorden Moor, to the west of the town of Todmorden in Calderdale, West Yorkshire (NGR centred SD 898 248). This followed the submission of an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) to accompany a planning application for five wind turbines, a meteorological mast, sub-station and access tracks. The EIA identified that the majority of heritage assets in the area relate to post-medieval coal mining, with an isolated Mesolithic find spot suggesting possible prehistoric activity in the area. Consequently, with a potential for encountering unknown archaeological remains during any ground breaking works, a watching brief was required during the geotechnical investigations. I and H Brown commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to conduct the watching brief which took place over two days on 23rd and 24th January 2013.
