Lancaster University Archaeological Unit (LUAU) undertook a watching brief on behalf of North West Water Ltd on land south of Belthorn Road in Guide, Lower Darwen, Lancashire, (from NGR SD7088 2530 to SD 3750 2510) during the stripping of topsoil along part of the course of a new pipeline. The work was undertaken in accordance with a project design prepared by LUAU, which was based on a verbal brief by the Lancashire County Archaeological Service (LCAS). The watching brief followed on from an assessment and survey of the reservoir and pipeline at Guide undertaken by LUAU (1998a and b).
The watching brief examined an area which was important for sandstone quarrying in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. There were also several relict field boundaries within the area, representing the post-medieval landscape.
No significant archaeological deposits were recorded during the watching brief, the only intrusive features identified related to drainage near Aspinall Fold.
