Energiekontor UK Ltd was granted consent to construct a wind farm on Oswaltwistle Moor, Hyndburn, Lancashire (centred at SD 745 244) in March 2010 subject to a programme of archaeological work on the site, in accordance with Condition 23, as outlined in the cultural heritage assessment that supported the planning application (Energiekontor 2009). A survey report (OA North 2010) recorded a number of archaeological sites, including field boundaries, ridge and furrow, quarries, and a trackway, and made recommendations for further work. OA North was subsequently commissioned to undertake a programme of archaeological trenching on the site. The location of the trenches was designed to mitigate the predicted effects of the development upon recorded archaeological sites and also examine the sites of the proposed turbines, service roads, and compound. This second phase of fieldwork was undertaken in November and December of 2010, the results of which are presented in this document.
