An archaeological evaluation was carried out on pasture land adjacent to the New Crown
Inn, Bolton, near Appleby, Cumbria (centred NGR NY 6395 2335) in advance of a
proposed housing development. The work was carried out by the Lancaster University
Archaeological Unit (LUAU) on behalf of Nichol Armstrong Lowe, Chartered Architects,
and Russell Armer Ltd.
This was a green field site, with no previous archaeological information available, but was
in close proximity to an early Norman church, which was potentially once the focus of a
medieval village; the present village is now centred c275m to the south-west of the church.
An evaluation programme was therefore recommended by the County Archaeologist to
establish if the area of the proposed development had any archaeological potential. LUAU
prepared a project design for this evaluation (Appendix 2), in accordance with a verbal
brief from the County Archaeologist.
The work comprised a desk-based study, compiling data from the Cumbria Sites and
Monuments Record, National Monuments Record, and Cumbria Record Office, followed
by a topographic survey of the upstanding earthworks and a selective programme of
excavation by trial trenching.
