The rapid survey of all the textile industry sites within the modern Borough of Pendle was conducted by the then Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England in partnership with English Heritage and the Borough of Pendle between autumn 1998 and spring 1999. The aim of the survey was to record the built remains of former textile industries at threat in the post industrial era, such as mills and related works, but did not extend to buildings such as housing, institutions, schools or churches unless they made a direct contribution to the understanding of mill sites. The survey concluded in the report 'Pendle Textile Mills, the buildings of the textile industry in the Borough of Pendle, Lancashire', (English Heritage 2000).
