Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned by the Environment Agency to maintain an archaeological watching brief during the course of a geotechnical investigation. This investigation was undertaken along a section of the
River Yarrow in advance of the development of a flood elevation scheme for the village of Croston in West Lancashire. The Proposed Development Area (PDA) took
in an area of land approximately 575m in length, extending between Roemoor Farm in the north (NGR 352162, 418521), Plump Farm to the south-west (NGR 352163, 417683) and Bradley Hall to the south-east (NGR 352744, 417825). The investigation entailed two phases of excavation, the first conducted in December 2013 involving three cable percussive boreholes, three windowless sampling holes and 34 trial pits, and the second conducted in July 2014 involving a further 39 test pits.
