On 25th and 26th March 2002, Oxford Archaeology North undertook a watching brief at Halton Green Farm, Lancashire (SD 3516 4653) on behalf of Mr Michael Cunliffe. The aim of the watching brief was to record any significant deposits uncovered during minor excavations associated with the construction of a horse arena. The site of the works was a field to the north of Low Road at the junction with a minor
road leading to Moorgate and Monkley Gill. The entire eastern part of the field was mechanically stripped of turf, uncovering the remains of several isolated features of postmedieval to modern date, which were clearly associated with the occupation of the farm. The area in question revealed no features of archaeological significance at the level exposed and, on the available evidence, the recreational landuse will have only minimal impact to any underlying remains.
