Abstract

As part of the Pendle Water Flood Alleviation Scheme, Volker Stevin Ltd are currently undertaking work to improve the flood defences of Pendle Water. The proposed redevelopment would involve the demolition of Reedyford Weir, a water
management scheme dating to the early part of the twentieth century. In light of its moderate historical significance, Lancashire County Archaeology Service (LCAS) recommended that an archaeological photographic survey was completed to a RCHME Level I-Type standard, to provide a permanent record of the structure prior to its demolition. Proposals to undertake the required work were submitted by Oxford
Archaeology North at the request of the client, and subsequently approved by LCAS. Immediately prior to the commencement of the fieldwork, the client also requested the
recording of a retaining wall and outfall aperture northwards along Pendle Water adjacent to Romney Avenue, which was agreed to by LCAS. The survey of the two sites included an extensive photographic record, and a brief written description and photographic location plan; the work was undertaken on Friday 27th May 2005.
