Proposals to develop No 18 York Street, Clitheroe, Lancashire (NGR SD 745 420) were judged to affect the original character of this Grade II Listed building (which is within the Clitheroe Conservation Area) and an archaeological condition was attached to the planning consent given by Ribble Valley District Council. OA North produced a project design for an archaeological building investigation (Appendix 1) in response to a verbal brief issued by the Lancashire County Archaeological Services (LCAS), which was subsequently approved. The Ashworth Burke Partnership acting on behalf of The Grand (part of the Oasis UK Charitable Trust) commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to undertake an English Heritage Level III-type
building investigation, prior to development works.
The subsequent map regression analysis and building investigation has revealed that the town house dates to at least 1847, when it is illustrated on the earliest available
Ordnance Survey map which is of this date. It was apparent that the general layout of the house had not altered greatly since its construction and the only major changes were the addition of a rear extension and some minor changes to some of the internal rooms.
