Full Description

Post medieval pits and linear features, Dale View Quarry, Lees Road, Stanton. 'The post medieval archaeology…is represented by the linear features and pits in Trench 3. These features probably represent the remains of sunken "hollow-ways", tracks or stock routes leading on to the moor tops which may point to an intensification of agricultural use, or possibly small-scale stone extraction in the landscape during this period.' (1) Clay tobacco pipe fragments and generic post medieval pottery was also reported. (2)
