An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) in advance of the construction of a driveway and double garage associated with a proposed residential development on land at West Leigh, Market Street, Hambleton, Lancashire (SD 365 425: Planning Application 05/00049/FUL). The work was carried out over three days in April 2006 on behalf of Mr P Thompson and
in full accordance with the Lancashire County Archaeology Service-approved project design compiled by OA North (Appendix 1).
Preliminary consultation of the Lancashire Sites and Monuments Record (SMR) indicated that the region around Hambleton has a reasonable representation of sites and findspots from most periods, in particular those of late prehistoric date. However, there are no recorded remains within the village itself until the medieval period; the
evidence for this has been derived from the church St Mary’s and the layout of the village.
