Lancaster University Archaeological Unit (LUAU) was commissioned by Chorley Young
Archaeologists Club (CYAC) to help undertake an excavation in August 2000, in a field to
the north of Euxton House Farm, Euxton, Chorley (SD 5540 1848). It was believed that an
early farmhouse had once stood on this site, and it was proposed that an excavation be
undertaken by CYAC to establish the character and survival of any remains on site and to
investigate the sequence of development of the house.
The earliest documented buildings on the site were erected somewhere between 1515 and
1530. The original farmhouse was dismantled around 1730 and was rebuilt using stone but
re-using many of the original oak beams in the floors and ceilings. For a period following
the rebuild the farmhouse was used as a tannery.
