A planning application (1/08/01253/CU) was submitted to Lancaster City Council for the conversion of a barn attached to a cottage at 2 Lancaster Road, Overton, Lancashire (NGR SD 43703 58087). The building lies at the north-eastern end of the medieval village of Overton and is depicted on the Ordnance Survey first edition 1:10,560 mapping of 1848, where it appears to be part of a small farmstead of two parallel rows of buildings. Lancashire County Archaeology Service (LCAS) recommended a buildings investigation of English Heritage Level II/III standard before conversion.
An examination was made of cartographic sources, in order to place the results of the building investigation into an historical context. A written description was made of all principal building elements, both internal and external, as well as any features of historical or architectural significance. A photographic archive was also compiled to produce black and white prints, and colour slides.
