    Hello I am trying to find more support/research documentation as to the article printed on your site concerning the possibilities of Roman encampment/use in Whalley, Lancashire. The senior archaeologist for Lancashire Mr D Moir has serious reservations regarding this. Please can you contact me to let me know how I can substantiate what you have stated. We have developers all over Whalley wanting to build and this is why this has all come about.
    Hope you can help.

    Whalley

    A bit late now but this PM was almost certainly genuine. Whalley is/was a small village, which due to Gov encouragement of resurging the building industry has been bombarded with outrageous & numerous new home building applications. At least two have been approved since this PM, which will geographically double the size of Whalley; there are still more in the application process It happened already with what used to be a WW1 hospital treating shell-shocked troops (calderstones); which has a small military cemetery attached which is now pretty messed up.
    The ref to Roman artifacts was probably a desperate attempt to claim historic significance & delay or stop the building. Last I heard it was based on a Roman altar being found in the Abbey ruins, which more than likely was pilfered from Ribchester fort in previous centuries.
    Though there is a known Roman signal tower on nearby Mellor hill.

    I believe the Roman altar with a figure of Mars carved onto it was found buried in the fabric of the church, but "yes" I understand the altar had come from Ribchester, at some point in recent history. Other than that, there does not seem to have been any Roman camp in Whalley, apart from maybe something on Mellor Hill? Whether that was a signal station, I don't know. There is a Romano-British camp/villa near Gisburn, but that's a fair distance from Whalley.
