This report summarises the results of an archaeological assessment of Green Moor Quarry, Rossendale, Lancashire, in advance of proposed reclamation works. The survey follows on from a programme of assessment of eight other quarries within the Rossendale area. The results of this investigation should be considered in conjunction with the earlier Rossendale Quarry assessment report (LUAU 1997).
The assessment of Green Quarry was carried out by the Lancaster University Archaeological Unit on behalf of the Lancashire County Council and included a brief discussion of the archaeological survival of the quarry, together with the compilation of a gazetteer of archaeological remains. The survey record comprises identification survey plans, and this report, which includes the gazetteer.
The survey allowed an assessment to be made of the archaeological value of the site, and from this a set of comments have been made about the likely impact of the reclamation works, on the potential of the quarries for educational and tourism use, and on the potential for further archaeological work.
