The Burnley, Colne And Nelson Upland Archaeology Project

A new web-based archaeological project has been started by the Barrowford author and archaeologist John A.Clayton to map with ‘LIDAR’ Technology the east Lancashire towns of Burnley, Nelson and Colne – taking in the surrounding upland areas of Thursden, Extwistle, Worsthorne and Mereclough – with a view to uncovering the ancient past of these places and, to map their prehistoric past from the many Mesolithic camps, Bronze Age barrows, Roman enclosures to Medieval water-mills with LIDAR mapping.

Hi – the new books relating to the BNC Archaeology Survey are now in print. They can be purchased online at  or by cheque directly from me. They are also available at The Pendle Heritage Centre, Barrowford.
