In March 2005 an archaeological building investigation was carried out by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) of the barn at the rear of 110 Main Street, Warton, Lancashire (SD 49900 72385), prior to its conversion into a two-storey dwelling. On the recommendation of Lancashire County Council Archaeological Service, a hybrid of Level II and III type survey was carried out (RCHME 1996), which comprised a physical inspection of the building, written descriptions, a photographic record and the production of a plan and cross-section drawing.

The building investigation has highlighted several modifications to the barn, which can be divided into three broad phases of development. These comprise the mid eighteenth century build and two phases of alterations and repairs. With the notable exception of the building of an outshut on the north corner, the majority of these modifications have affected neither the scale or shape of the building, and it is likely that the overall character of the building has changed little since it was built in the mid-eighteenth century.
