This report describes the geology of 1:10 000 sheets SD72NE (Accrington) and SD73SE (Padiham) (figures 1 and 2). The area (hereafter referred to as ‘the district’) was first geologically surveyed on the ‘old’ county series by E Hull and published in 1875. R L Sherlock and L H Tonks subsequently remapped the district on the ‘new’ county series sheets Lancashire 55, 56, 63, 64, 71 and 72 in 1921-23. The one-inch Geological Sheet 76 (Rochdale) and accompanying sheet memoir (Wright et al. 1927) were published in 1927. The area was resurveyed on the 1:10 560 and 1:10 000-scales by J R Earp in 1947 (Clitheroe Sheet) and E Hough in 2000 (Rochdale Sheet).
