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.
