Abstract:
Stone was being quarried from Lee Delph from the early 1800s at least but the mid to late-19th century was characterised by a significant expansion in quarrying brought about by increased urban growth, mechanisation and improved stone-working techniques. As with the Rossendale Quarries generally the most sought-after rock comprised Haslingden Flags from which was produced flags, setts, kerbs, manhole covers, and later concrete flags and kerbs, and roadstone. The Sawshed at Lee Quarry, which is the subject of this report, was built between 1910 and 1930 and probably went out of use in the 1950s. It is now in a ruinous condition and urgent conservation work is required to prevent further deterioration. Groundwork Pennine Lancashire, acting on behalf of the Partnership involved in the Valley of Stone project, has commissioned such work, two requirements of which were an archaeological recording programme and archaeological monitoring of the conservation work. J.M. Trippier Archaeological and Surveying Consultancy of Bolton was retained to carry out this work. This report fulfils the first requirement for an archaeological recording programme.
