Following a request by Cumbria County Council Archaeology Service (CCCAS), Oxford Archaeology North (OA North), undertook a rapid desk-based assessment and archaeological watching brief during the construction of a conference room at Chequers Hotel, 10 Abbey road, Dalton-in-Furness, Cumbria (centred on SD 2265 7384). The work was undertaken on the 18th November 2004.

Chequers Hotel is located within the historic town of Dalton-in-Furness, and lies close to the Church of St Mary (SMR 2284), Dalton Castle (SMR 4381), and the medieval market place. The hotel also stands on the site of a free school founded in 1622 for children of the town (SMR 2283). The site is therefore located in an area of some archaeological potential. As a result of this, CCAS recommended that a watching brief should be maintained during the ground works for the conference room.
