As part of the ‘Building Schools for the Future’ (BSF) project, proposals are to be submitted to redevelop Orford Park, Orford, near Warrington in Cheshire (NGR SJ 610 900). Capita Symonds commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to undertake a desk-based assessment to identify the known archaeological resource in order to inform the planning process, and consider whether there is a requirement for any further archaeological work.
The desk-based assessment, which was carried out in May 2009, comprised a search of both published and unpublished records held by the Cheshire Historic Environment Record (CHER) in Chester, the Cheshire Record Office in Chester, the local studies section of Warrington library, and the archives and library held at OA North. In addition to this, the site was visited in order to relate the landscape and surroundings to the results of the desk-based assessment.
The study area lies approximately 1km to the north of Warrington town centre, and was a rural hamlet in the township and parish of Warrington, before being surrounded
by urban development. The site is generally flat and lies at approximately 10m OD. It is bounded to the north by Long Lane (A50), to the west by Winwick Road (A49), the east by Hallfields Road and to the south by Alder Lane.
