Furness Abbey, Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria: Archaeological Evaluation

Bradley, Jeremy (2011) Furness Abbey, Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria: Archaeological Evaluation. Project Report. Oxford Archaeology North. (Submitted)




English Heritage invited Oxford Archaeology North to undertake an archaeological evaluation at Furness Abbey, Cumbria (centred on NGR SD 218 717). This evaluation entailed the excavation of a 1.5m by 1.5m trench over an area of subsidence, which had been observed within the abbey grounds, close to the Abbott’s lodgings. The aim of the evaluation was to discover the cause of this subsidence and, in particular, to determine if the subsidence related to any collapsed below-ground structures, which might require repair or reinstatement.
