Following a proposal by United Utilities to undertake improvements to the electricity sub-station on Spring Garden Street, Lancaster (centred on SD 4762 6148), Lancashire County Archaeology Service (LCAS) recommended that a programme of rapid desk-based assessment and archaeological watching brief should be carried out. It was intended that this should ascertain the presence or absence of any archaeological remains within the area of the development works. The watching brief was undertaken in June and August 2006.
The development works required the expansion of the footprint of the existing sub-station into the area of the adjoining car parking facility. Archaeological evidence from the surrounding area had indicated a high potential for archaeological remains on the site, particularly of Roman date, although such remains were likely to have been truncated by the development of the sub-station itself.
