In February 2017, Oxford Archaeology North were commissioned by Prospect Archaeology, on behalf of Mr and Mrs Caunce, to undertake an archaeological strip map and record exercise on land at Croston Hall Estate, Croston, Lancashire (NGR: SD 34948 41793). Mr and Mrs Caunce had secured planning permission (15/00540/FULMAJ) for the construction of a new private dwelling and creation of a sunken garden, together with other restoration works on the site. Prior to commencement of development on site, Condition 4 attached to the planning permission required a programme of archaeological works to be implemented in accordance with a written scheme of investigation approved by the Local Planning Authority in the area of the proposed sunken garden.
Prospect Archaeology provided the written scheme of investigation, outlining the requirements of the strip, map and record, based on the findings of a Heritage Assessment undertaken by Shaw and Jagger Architects in 2015 and an archaeological desk-based assessment undertaken by Adams and Ahmad, also in 2015. The sunken garden was to be constructed over the remains of cellars associated with the demolished Croston Hall, however, the extent of these was unknown. The strip, map and record aimed to record the extent and nature of the remains.
