A building assessment and trial trenching were undertaken by Lancaster University
Archaeological Unit (LUAU) in April and May 1999, at Carnforth Lodge, Carnforth (NGR SD
49637032). The work was commissioned by Nicol Thomas Ltd and was intended to evaluate the
impact of a proposed retail development on the site. The fabric survey was undertaken in advance
of demolition of the building and the evaluation trial trenching was undertaken following
demolition. The work programme followed on from an assessment (LUAU 1997) which
demonstrated that the majority of the site had been subject to quarrying, with a substantial quantity
of recent infilling. Only the front part of the site appeared to have survived intact, around and to
the north of the former lodge. This assessment highlighted the need to record Carnforth Lodge in
more detail, the potential for urban ribbon development along the Lancaster Road from Carnforth,
and had recommended below ground investigation of the site to establish if there were structures
or activity prior to the construction of the lodge.
