Following a request by PCP Architects Ltd on behalf of Empera Estates Ltd, Oxford Archaeology North undertook a pre-planning desk-based assessment of a proposed
development area at the Old Bingo Hall, Warwick Road, Carlisle (NGR NY 4037 5570) in September and October 2005. The site lies in close proximity to the southern
entrance into the city via English Gate and Citadel, within an area of potential Roman activity and on the edge of the medieval heart of Carlisle. It also lies on one of the
main arterial routes into and out of the city, and has the potential to incorporate significant sub-surface archaeological remains.
The desk-based assessment comprised a search of both published and unpublished records held by the Historic Environment Record (HER) in Kendal; the Cumbria County Record Office in Carlisle; and the local reference collection at Carlisle Library, as well as various institutions with online facilities including the National
Monuments Record (NMR), English Heritage, the National Trust and the Archaeology Data Service (ADS). The assessment highlighted the wealth of archaeological evidence, retrieved by excavation, for areas immediately adjacent to
the site, and this would indicate that the site is likely to preserve archaeological evidence within its boundaries.
