|Description ||The Bridestones were excavated and partially restored in 1936-37 by Prof. H.J. Fleure of Manchester University. The excavation was documented by Margaret Dunlop MA in the Lancashire & Cheshire Antiquarion Soc. Vol 53.
During the excavation, Mr. G. Ech Roger Jr. of Bridestones House took a series of pictures that to date it is thought have not been published. The glass negatives are now owned by historian Doug Pickford and it is with his permission that they are now presented.
