Strong Developments Ltd has proposed the development of land adjacent to the M6 motorway and Kellet Road, Carnforth, Lancashire (SD 50696 70304) for the purposes of constructing a number of industrial units. Following consultation, the Planning Archaeologist at Lancashire County Archaeology Service (LCAS) requested that a programme of geophysical survey and archaeological evaluation trenching be undertaken in order to support and inform the planning application. Consequently, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned to undertake the archaeological programme of work.
OA North submitted a Written Scheme of Investigation to the Planning Archaeologist, and following its approval, the subsequent programme of work was undertaken in March and April of 2011. The University of Liverpool carried out the initial element of the fieldwork, the geophysical survey, prior to the evaluation trenching taking place. The excavation of the evaluation trenches was, in part, informed by the results of the geophysical survey. This document presents the results of the work, and assesses the significance of the archaeological resource of the site.
