The Lancaster University Archaeological Unit (LUAU) at the request of New World
Power Company Ltd undertook a rapid identification archaeological assessment of
two areas, in Bewcastle and Nether Denton parishes, between 20th June and 1st July
1994, in advance of Wind Farm developments.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 two study areas,
Greyfell Common and Greenside, which in total comprise 13.2 sqkm of unimproved
fell (Greyfell Common 12.10 sqkm, Greenside 1.1 sqkm). Satellite Global
Positioning Survey (GPS) techniques were used to locate the monuments accurately
and quickly. A summary gazetteer of archaeological sites was compiled, including
assessments and recommendations for future strategies.
