Planning permission for the demolition of Garden Cottage and an adjacent outbuilding, near Casterton, Kirkby Lonsdale, Cumbria (NGR centred SD 6217 7967) was granted by South Lakeland District Council (SLDC) (planning reference
SL/07/0397). A condition of the planning permission required a programme of archaeological building recording prior to demolition. Cumbria County Council’s Historic Environment Service (CCCHES) issued a formal brief requesting a rapid
desk-based assessment and an English Heritage Level 2 measured survey. Mr Gary Mawdesley commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to carry out the
work, which was undertaken in December 2008.
The site is located approximately 0.2km to the west of the village of Casterton, which is approximately 1.5km north-east of the town of Kirkby Lonsdale, Cumbria. Garden
Cottage is situated within the grounds of Casterton Hall, and dates to around 1811 and was built by William Wilson Carus-Wilson, possibly designed by John Webb.
Associated with the cottage and outbuilding are a large walled garden and other structures that are not subject to the investigation. The measured building survey was carried out to English Heritage Level 2 criteria, in order to record both Garden Cottage and the adjacent outbuilding. Both buildings were subject to measured recording techniques, including the production of floor plans and cross-section drawings. A written description of both the external and
internal details of both of the buildings was conducted.
