As part of a pre-planning proposal by Lingley Mere Business Park Development Company Limited to develop an area at Lingley Mere near Warrington in Cheshire (SJ 5580 8994), an archaeological desk-based assessment was requested by White
Young Green Consulting on their behalf. This was intended to assess the likely impact that any development would have on the archaeological resource of the area, and covered an area of 1km radius around the proposed development site. Oxford
Archaeology North (OA North) carried out the assessment in January 2004.
The desk-based assessment consulted a number of sources including primary documents such as maps, as well as secondary sources such as books and journals. It also used information held in the Sites and Monuments Records for Merseyside and Cheshire. A number of archaeological sites were identified within the study area, the majority of which were not considered to be of any great archaeological significance.
In total, 21 sites of archaeological interest were identified, including a single Scheduled Monument – Barrow Old Hall (Site 03). The majority are post-medieval in date, and are unlikely to be affected by the proposed development. However, it was considered likely that eight may be affected, and further mitigation work is recommended to allow suitable recording. Of particular interest is the close proximity of the development area to Burtonwood Airfield (Site 09).
