Here is a very quick précis of a short day before we got rained off. We will do the planned walk next time.
After separating from out barn recording friends at the Pendle Heritage Centre, four of us did a short walk to the spot east of Sabden where Read History Group found slag on Tuesday.
Having looked at the site, it looks highly likely that we have evidence of our third bloomery in the valley. The site may be more complete than our excavated Old House bloomery, though probably more disturbed. An initial series of test pits some time in the future would be useful rather than a full scale dig.
