Abstract

The building currently known as the Ragged School and Ardley Centre in, Blackburn has been earmarked for redevelopment in order to build an older persons’ extra care scheme. The school is of local historical significance, providing for the poor and needy and, as a result, a condition for the archaeological recording of the building was attached to the planning consent. Following advice from the Lancashire County Archaeology Service (LCAS) and a verbal brief, Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council (BDBC), commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to carry out a programme of archaeological building recording. The Ragged School is positioned on Bent Street, Blackburn, which is situated at the southern end of Stonyhurst Road, approximately 0.8km to the west of Blackburn town centre (NGR SD 6778 2783).
