This report details the findings of an archaeological assessment at Cheetham Close,
Turton, Lancashire, centred approximately on SD 716 158. The work was commissioned
by Lancashire County Council to contribute to a management plan of the area; Lancaster
University Archaeological Unit (LUAU) undertook the work in March 2000. The
programme of work comprised a rapid identification survey of Cheetham Close and an
intensive survey of the principal sites, a stone circle and a ring cairn, located just northeast
of the Cheetham Close summit.
The identification survey involved the systematic field walking of the study area, with the
sites being located using Global Positioning System (GPS) equipment. The intensive
survey was undertaken by means of both GPS and Total Station equipment, and involved
the creation of detailed mapping at a scale of 1:20.
