Fox Strategic Land & Property has proposed a residential development on agricultural land situated on the southern edge of Braithwaite village, Keighley, in West Yorkshire (NGR SE 0419 4110). In order to promote the site through the Local Development Framework process, Fox Strategic Land & Property commissioned Oxford Archaeology North to carry out an archaeological desk-based assessment of the area. The principal aim of the assessment was to identify, as far as possible, the nature and significance of the cultural heritage and sub-surface archaeological resource within the study area, and to establish the impact of development upon this resource.
The desk-based assessment comprised a search of both published and unpublished records held by the West Yorkshire Historic Environment Record in Wakefield, the Local Studies Library in Keighley, and the archives and library held at OA North. This report sets out the results of the desk-based assessment, along with a gazetteer of sites. The report also includes a statement of the archaeological potential and significance (defined by the criteria detailed in PPG 16 (DoE 1990)), in which an assessment of the impact of development on the historic environment is taken into account. This has been carried out in accordance with government advice in the form of Planning Policy Guidance notes 15 Planning and the Historic Environment (DoE/DoNH 1994) and 16 Archaeology and Planning (DoE 1990).
