In response to a planning application, submitted to Ribble Valley Borough Council (Planning Application Number 3/3/1104P) by Mr Diarmuid Beary for the construction of a two-storey extension and conservatory at the domestic dwelling ‘Feolin’, Greenside, Ribchester, Lancashire (NGR SD 65090 35287; Fig 1), Lancashire County Archaeology Service (LCAS) recommended an archaeological investigation. The site lies within the village of Ribchester, in an area designated as a Scheduled Monument (LSM 55), as it is known to be within the vicus or civilian settlement to the north of the Roman fort.
The first stage of investigation was the excavation of two test pits, in order to assess the nature, survival and extent of any archaeological deposits that may be impacted upon by the proposed extension. This was carried out by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) in March 2004, and in situ Roman deposits were identified (OA North 2004). Consequently, it was recommended by LCAS that an archaeological watching brief be required to mitigate the effects of the development. The groundworks associated with the building of the extension, including the foundations, service trenches and any further earth moving activities, were required to be undertaken under archaeological supervision.
