    A new web-based archaeological project has been started by the Barrowford author John A.Clayton to map with 'Lidar technology' the East Lancashire towns of Burnley, Nelson and Colne, taking in the surrounding areas of Thursden, Extwistle, Worsthorne and Mereclough - with a view to uncover the ancient past of these upland places and, to map their prehistoric past from Mesolithic camps, Bronze-Age barrows, Roman enclosures through to Medieval water-mills with Lidar mapping. Please take a look at this new and very exciting website.
