In July 2002, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) carried out an archaeological evaluation close to the former site of Edge Nook Farm, to the east of the Queen’s Park Hospital, Blackburn, and to the south of Old Bank Lane, at SD 6971 2668. The area investigated measured approximately 50m x 50m (0.25 ha).
The evaluation was commissioned by Balfour Haden QV, on behalf of the Queen’s Park Hospital, in advance of the determination of a planning application for the erection of further hospital buildings and external facilities. The total development area, comprising c 9.5ha, had earlier been considered within a desktop assessment and rapid
identification survey of a wider area, conducted during 2000 by the former Lancaster University Archaeological Unit (LUAU). However, only Edge Nook Farm was eventually evaluated.
