Edge Hill University, near Ormskirk, Lancashire, propose to construct a new sports facility, which will consist of ten sports pitches over the majority of the site, two piazza pools and a car park in the south-west corner, with associated access roads and footpaths, between the new facilities and the current university. At a later date, a sports hall will be constructed, and a gas pipeline will be inserted through the centre of the site. As part of the planning application (Planning Application 8/2011/0504/FUL), Nexus Heritage was employed to undertake a contribution to an Environmental Impact Assessment in the form of an archaeological assessment, and a detailed magnetometer survey, to further identify the potential for archaeological remains. The resulting assessment indicated that there were seven sites of archaeological potential within the proposed development site.
