Oxford Archaeology North was commissioned by Capita Symonds and Cumbria
County Council to undertake the archaeological evaluation of four areas of a proposed
scheme to redevelop the area around the docks of Barrow-in-Furness. The four areas
evaluated were the Marina Park site (SD 2170 6870), the Marina Village site (SD
2060 6860), the Innovation Park site (SD 2000 6780) and the Ramsden Dock Access
Road site (SD 1970 6750).
The evaluation, conducted in accordance with a brief from Cumbria County Council’s
Archaeology Service (Appendix 1), was undertaken in February and March 2005 and
comprised the excavation of 87 trenches, with Trenches 1-28 at the Marina Village
site, Trenches 29-42 at the Marina Park site, Trenches 43-56 at the Ramsden Dock
Access Road site and Trenches 57-87 at the Innovation Park site. The majority of the
trenches showed only limited amounts of mainly nineteenth or twentieth century
activity. In addition to the evaluation, a limited watching brief, on five geotechnical
test pits, was undertaken.
