Manning Elliot are currently preparing a planning application, on behalf of their client Lowther Mannelli, to redevelop a large area of land at Southend Road, Penrith,
Cumbria (area centred NY 5163 2987) for commercial and residential purposes, as anextension to the town of Penrith. As part of the proposals, the currently empty Grade
II* listed Two Lions Inn public house will be redeveloped for commercial purposes.
As a result, in consultation with English Heritage, the client commissioned OxfordArchaeology North (OA North) to undertake an assessment of the building in order to
understand its phasing and note any features of archaeological or historicalsignificance.
An assessment based on an RCHME Level 1-type survey was carried out in July2005. The results have been presented in the following report, which is required for imminent submission with the planning application. It is anticipated that, given itsstatutory status, the building will require a more detailed assessment and recording prior to any development. It is also the client’s intention that the information from the assessments will be used to inform their design stage for the proposed redevelopment.
