Mr and Mrs W. Bailey of Lower Greystoneley, Chipping in Lancashire, (SD 6442 4527) made a planning application (Planning Application 3/04/0402P) to Ribble Valley Borough Council to develop and convert a barn on their land. As part of the planning procedure, the council consulted Lancashire County Archaeological Service, which recommended a building recording programme of RCHME (1996) Level II standard. This was to include a rapid desk-based assessment, which would provide an historical background and detail any changes in the development of the farmstead. In addition, an extensive site investigation was to be undertaken, comprising written
descriptions, as well an extensive photographic record, and site drawings of the floorplans and sections. Following these recommendations, Mr and Mrs Bailey requested that Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) undertake the building
investigation, which was duly completed in April 2006.
The background research revealed little textual evidence, but the cartographic sources provided a sequence of building from the mid-nineteenth century through to the early
decades of the twentieth century. The research demonstrated that between 1844 and 1891, the barn and several other (out)buildings were constructed in the farmstead.
Following this period, the only further change was the addition of a lean-to or outshut to the north elevation of the barn.
