Prior to development, and acting on behalf of Wm Morrison Supermarkets PLC, Gifford
and Partners commissioned Lancaster University Archaeological Unit to evaluate land at
Gadbrook Park (NGR SJ 685723), to the south of Northwich, Cheshire. King Street (now
the A530), a Roman road, ran through the site, and the evaluation was concentrated within
a 25m wide corridor on either side of this road; trenches were positioned either parallel or
at right-angles to the road. The evaluation included a gradiometer survey, undertaken by
Geophysical Surveys of Bradford, to investigate the possibility of a kiln within a field,
formerly known as Brick Kiln Field, to the east of King Street. In conjunction with the
excavation programme a palaeo-environmental evaluation was undertaken by the
Environmental Archaeology Unit of York University.
