The Lancaster University Archaeological Unit (LUAU) was commissioned by Lancashire
County Council to undertake an archaeological survey on the site of the disused Rimington
Lead Mines in order to inform future proposals for the scheduling of the monument. The site
had previously been reviewed by the English Heritage sponsored Monument Protection
Programme (Cranstone 1992).
The whole mining complex was field walked, the locations of the features were plotted using
a Global Positioning System, and a gazetteer of the features recorded was prepared. An area
at the northern end of the complex was also surveyed in detail.
