Introduction

The Aggregate Landscape of Gloucestershire project was undertaken by Gloucestershire County Council Archaeology Service and was funded through the English Heritage administered Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund (ALSF).

Gloucestershire has a range of geological resources used as aggregates, primarily two areas of limestone (one in the Forest of Dean and one in the Cotswolds) and the sand and gravel deposits of the river valleys. The main aim of the project was to improve the amount and quality of archaeological information regarding the aggregate producing areas, in order to inform decisions regarding the likely impact of aggregates extraction at future Minerals Local Plan reviews, reviews of existing minerals planning permissions (ROMPs) and assessments of new applications for minerals planning permission.
