A planning application was submitted to Pendle Borough Council by Persimmon Homes Ltd, for the development of 30 dwellings, including the refurbishment of two existing buildings and the creation of an appropriate infrastructure and landscaping at Edge End Farm, Nelson, Lancashire. Conditional permission was granted with a requirement for an archaeological investigation to be carried out in the form of archaeological building recording of the earlier of the two buildings. Lancashire County Archaeology Service (LCAS) issued a specification for the building recording in order to allow the client to meet the terms of the condition. OA North was commissioned by Persimmon Homes Ltd to undertake the building investigation in December 2005.
The map regression analysis and building investigation at Edge End Farm has revealed that the house in question was probably constructed in the mid-late nineteenth century. A structure first appears in this position on the 1893 OS map,
which would concur with the general architectural and constructional details of the building. It is apparent that other surrounding buildings have been demolished and the
farmhouse now stands alone and isolated. The building has suffered over recent years and has been stripped of most internal fabric, which forced limited analysis of the
original form.
