Bovis Lend Lease propose to construct an integrated health centre adjacent to the recently constructed Hambledon College, and Cherryfold Primary School, off Cog Lane, Burnley (NGR SD 8257 3172). Consequently, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) were commissioned to carry out a desk-based assessment, which was undertaken in October and November 2009.
The desk-based assessment comprised a search of both published and unpublished records held by the Lancashire Historic Environment Record (HER) in Preston, the County Record Office in Preston, the local history section of Burnley Central Library, and the archives and library held at OA North. The results were used to assess the nature of the known and potential archaeological resource in the immediate area, and the potential effects of the proposed scheme on this resource. In addition to this, a site visit was carried out on the site of the proposed development, in order to relate the landscape and surroundings to the results of the desk-based assessment.
In total, eleven sites were identified within a study area with a radius of 250m from the centre of the proposed development site. Five sites (Sites 01-05) were identified from the HER that are outwith the proposed development boundary and will not be affected. These included a colliery (Site 01) and tramway (Site 02), a well (Site 03), a Methodist Chruch (Site 04), and a public house (Site 05). The remaining six sites (Sites 06-11) were identified following consultation of the historic maps and included a farm (Site 06), the site of a former chapel (Site 07) and four twentieth century buildings (Sites 08-11). All eleven sites are post-medieval, industrial or modern in date.
Four of these (Sites 08-11) are within the proposed development area, and are buildings of mid-to late-twentieth century date, none are statutorily protected. A slight potential for unknown below ground remains associated with Cherry Fold Colliery (Site 01) has been identified, but the impact is considered to be negligible. Although they will be impacted by the proposed development scheme they are not considered to be of particular archaeological or historical significance.
