JMP Architects requested that Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) undertake an archaeological desk-based assessment ahead of a residential development of the gardens of Abbots Brow, Kirkby Lonsdale (SD 6122 7880). The proposed development affects an area considered to have archaeological potential and, accordingly, Cumbria County Council Historic Environment Service (CCCHES) have issued a planning condition for a desk-based study and a programme of evaluation. The first stage of the work was carried out in accordance with a verbal brief from Cumbria County Council and a project design submitted by OA North. The proposed development site comprises approximately 710m² of horticultural gardens within the centre of the town, to the immediate east of the parish church and in an area of known post-medieval and industrial activity.
The desk-based assessment was carried out in October 2010 and comprised a search of both published and unpublished records held by the Cumbria County Council Historic Environment Record (CCCHER) in Kendal, the Cumbria Record Office in Kendal, and the archives and library held at OA North.
