The Lancaster University Archaeological Unit was commissioned to undertake an
archaeological evaluation of the Priory Paddock at St Bees, Cumbria (NX 9682,
1202), in advance of the site being developed into a wildlife garden.
Previous fieldwork in the area had identified that in some areas significant
archaeological deposits survived within Priory Paddock at a depth of c1m below the
ground surface. These appeared to relate to the stabling of animals within the medieval
Priory precinct, although they were overlain by similar material dating to the
eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The primary aim of the evaluation was to
establish if the proposed development would affect significant archaeological deposits.
