Abstract

Following a proposal to improve Water Treatment Works, including the construction of new pipelines between Barrowford and Newchurch-in-Pendle, Lancashire, the Lancashire County Archaeology Service recommended that a programme of archaeological work should be undertaken along the proposed route. This was to comprise a desk-based assessment and walkover survey of the area. In total, 62 sites of archaeological interest were identified as being within the study area. Of these, 22 were already listed in the Historic Environment Record with a further seventeen identified during the walkover survey. Several of these (27) are considered likely to be affected by the proposed new pipelines. The sites thought likely to be affected by the development included 17 of post-medieval origin (Sites 05, 06, 13, 15, 17, 20, 23, 32, 37, 38, 42, 45, 46, 49, 50, 58 and 60) and ten of unknown date (Sites 10-12, 14, 29, 33, 43, 53, 54 and 55). Of the post-medieval sites one was a reservoir (Site 05), 15 were agricultural in nature (Sites 06, 13, 15, 17, 20, 23, 32, 37, 38, 42, 45, 46, 50, 58 and 60) and one quarry (Site 49). Five of the undated sites were possibly agricultural in nature (Sites 10-12, 33 and 43), one was a spring (Site 29) and four were quarries (Sites 14, 53, 54, 55).
