Purcell on behalf of their client, Scarisbrick Hall Ltd, commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to undertake archaeological building recording of a section of brick wall forming part of a lead-lined drainage channel on the roof of the Great Hall (part of the Central Block), at Scarisbrick Hall, Scarisbrick, Lancashire (NGR SD 391 126). The drainage channel was found to have been responsible for water damage to adjacent historic fabric and its removal was considered necessary in order to facilitate repairs to the adjacent roof structure.
Scarisbrick Hall is a Grade 1 listed building (List Entry Number 10385565), that has suffered from a prolonged period of neglect and redevelopment culminating in the building being included on the Heritage at Risk Register compiled by English Heritage. Purcell has produced a Conservation Management Plan (CMP) for the whole Scarisbrick estate, and as part of ongoing remedial repair works to parts of the roof structure, the removal of a short section of brick wall was required in order to access the rotted rafters. The Conservation Officer for West Lancashire requested that the wall be recorded according to English Heritage guidelines prior to its removal. The methodology for the recording work was based upon an English Heritage Level 3/4 type survey.
