Abstract

Edge Hill University, near Ormskirk, Lancashire, propose to construct a new sports
facility, which will consist of ten sports pitches over the majority of the site, two
piazza pools and a car park in the south-west corner, with associated access roads and
footpaths, between the new facilities and the current university. At a later date, a
sports hall will be constructed, and a gas pipeline will be inserted through the centre of
the site.
As part of the planning application (Planning Application 8/2011/0504/FUL), Nexus
Heritage was employed to undertake a contribution to an Environmental Impact
Assessment in the form of an archaeological assessment, and a detailed magnetometer
survey, to further identify the potential for archaeological remains. The resulting
assessment indicated that there were seven sites of archaeological potential within the
proposed development site.
