An archaeological assessment was undertaken in September / November 1999, by Lancaster
University Archaeological Unit (LUAU), in advance of the proposed extension (centred at
NGR SD 890 284) to the existing Coal Clough Windfarm, on behalf of Renewable Energy
Systems Ltd. LUAU was required to assess the archaeological resource within two areas (A
and B) that have been proposed as options for the windfarm extension.
The desk-based study demonstrated a potentially important early communication route (Long
Causeway) that extended along the northern part of the area. It also highlighted considerable
mining activity within the study area. The mining activity was confirmed by the identification
survey which revealed a series of mine shaft groups in area B, and also an intensive, but later
pit on the east side of Area A.
