An Appraisal of the Vaccary at Barley in the Forest of Pendle (pdf) This relates to fieldwork carried out some years ago, when the vaccaries within the Blackburn Hundred, owned by the de Lacy family were researched. A vaccary is a cow pasture the main purpose of which was to provide oxen for the de Lacy estates. These were run on an industrial scale and have left traces in the landscape. The research took the form of fieldwalking to recognise any remaining features in the landscape, together with documentary evidence obtained from maps, historic records and from the Records Office at Preston.
