A planning application (02/05/0997) has been submitted by Waste 2 Resources for the construction of a waste technology park on the former ICI Burn Hall site at Thornton,Lancashire (NGR SD 3334 4437). Part of the proposed development site is known to have been occupied formerly by the medieval Burn Hall, whilst an archaeological evaluation undertaken by OA North in the summer of 2006 identified post-medieval structural remains. Accordingly, Lancashire County Archaeology Service (LCAS)requested that a programme of archaeological monitoring be undertaken during certain groundworks associated with the development. Following submission of a project design to meet LCAS requirements, OA North were commissioned by Waste 2 Resources to undertake the works in October 2007 and June 2008.
The redevelopment concerns a c 70 ha area corresponding with the eastern half of the former ICI works. However, the principal area of interest, which formed the focus of
the watching brief, was located at the south-western corner of the site where the route of the B5286 Fleetwood Road North was upgraded and a roundabout and access road,
together with associated services and footpaths, was constructed on a north-east/southwest alignment towards the site of the refuse plant.
