A watching brief was undertaken by Lancaster University Archaeological Unit (LUAU) on 29th
September 1999, at Carnforth Lodge, Carnforth (NGR SD 49637032). The work was
commissioned by Nicol Thomas Ltd and was intended to record an archaeological deposits
adversely affected by the construction of a retail development on the site. The work programme
followed on from an assessment (LUAU 1997), and evaluation and building assessment survey
(LUAU 1999), 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, nearest the road,
appeared to have survived intact, around and to the north of the now demolished lodge. The
previous archaeological work had highlighted the presence of potential archaeological features
within the southernmost part of the lodge platform, and during the watching brief the modern
deposits in this area were machined away in order to assess any further survival of features.
