The Lancaster University Archaeological Unit (LUAU) at the request of Dulas
Environmental undertook a rapid identification archaeological assessment at Low
Houses in the parish of Nether Denton in May 1995, in advance of a proposed
windfarm development.
The assessment comprised a desk top search of existing records of archaeological sites
in the area, an appraisal of relevant published, manuscript and photographic
documentation. It also comprised a rapid identification survey of the study area, which
consists of 0.9 sqkm of unimproved fell. Satellite Global Positioning Survey (GPS)
techniques were used to locate the monuments accurately. A summary gazetteer of
archaeological sites was compiled, including assessments and recommendations for
future strategies.
