An interim survey of Vale Royal House, Cheshire (Grid Reference SJ 6390 6985) was
undertaken from the 13th March to the 13th April 1995 by staff of Lancaster University
Archaeological Unit. The survey was conducted in advance of repair and conversion works on
behalf of DHC (Bradford) Ltd.
The intention of the survey was to record the fabric and structure of the building in order to
augment previous surveys and to provide a basis for analysis and interpretation of the
structural sequence. Architectural details, including structural elements, were annotated onto
plans produced by TACP Design and monochrome prints and scale photographs were taken
of selective features. A pro-forma recording system was used to organise room-by-room
descriptions. An instrument survey was conducted of the exterior of the building, to provide
accurate co-ordinates which will facilitate the plotting to scale of the rectified photographs.
