An architectural watching brief was carried out at Halsall Hall, Lancashire between June and September 1995 by Lancaster University Archaeological Unit (LUAU). The aim of the watching brief was to record plans, and internal and external elevations of the building by hand measured survey based on supplied architects drawings, and to monitor the excavation of service trenches.
The development was well advanced when the watching brief was started, a large amount of the original fabric either had been removed or substantially altered, which severely restricted the recording programme. Some plans and elevations, produced by Richard Clarke (Architects) dating from 1984, were used as a base and provided significant detail in areas impacted by the development prior to the present programme. Further information was also drawn from an earlier survey and excavation carried out by Jennifer Lewis in 1984.
The main feature revealed by the watching brief of the service trenches was a deep culvert cut 2m into the bedrock, which had previously been recorded in the 1984 excavations.
