The Lancaster University Archaeological Unit, at the request of Eric Thompson
Associates undertook an archaeological evaluation at Pye Motors, Parliament
Street, Lancaster, in December 1994. This work was conducted in advance of the
redevelopment of the site. The evaluation involved two phases of work: a desk
based assessment, followed by a field evaluation. This report documents the
results of the field evaluation.
The proposed redevelopment scheme limited ground disturbance to the St
Leonardsgate street frontage, and the field evaluation was thus focused on this
area of the site. A total of seven trenches was excavated, however no significant
archaeological deposits were revealed. The St Leonardsgate street frontage area of
the site had been extensively cellared, probably in the latter half of the nineteenth
century when a row of terraced houses was constructed. Only one small area of the
site did not appear to have been cellared (trench 6), but even here the subsoil was
truncated, and no in situ archaeological deposits were recorded.
