Pendle’s Hidden Valley Project is the latest long term archaeological undertaking of the Pendle Heritage Archaelogy Group. In brief the aim of the Project is to examine the history of the valley between Portfield (near Whalley) and Water Meetings (near Barrowford).

The emphasis is on pre 1066 activity. Our dig programme has so far included early industrial, agricultural, & domestic excavations. We have unearthed finds ranging from the Mesolithic to the Modern, from worked stone to Medieval pot to bone. A multi- discipline approach has been taken so there are opportunities for different forms of involvement ranging from the sedate to the active.
