A desk top study and two identification surveys have been carried out by Lancaster University
Archaeological Unit ahead of the proposed construction of a wind farm at Hogshead,
Lancashire, by Renewable Energy Systems (SD 3705 4257 to SD 3714 4253). The first
identification survey was undertaken in June 1998 and examined the area of the proposed
wind farm and the second, undertaken in December 1998, examined the proposed access
The purpose of the assessment was to assemble desk‐based evidence for the
archaeological and historical potential of the site, and to test this by identification
survey. This work assessed the nature and extent of the archaeological resource affected by
the proposed development from both documentary sources and surviving surface traces.
