Gregory, Richard and Bates, Andrew and Wegiel, Becky (2010) West Lakes Academy, Egremont, Cumbria: Archaeological Evaluation. Project Report. Oxford Archaeology North. (Submitted)




Oxford Archaeology North was commissioned by Kier Construction Ltd to undertake a programme of archaeological evaluation at West Lakes Academy, Egremont (centred on NY 0100 1095), as a prerequisite to the construction of a replacement school. The evaluation comprised the excavation of four trial trenches in order to determine the presence or absence of below-ground remains associated with four potential archaeological sites, identified by an earlier OA North desk-based assessment, which might be affected by groundworks associated with the construction of the replacement school. These sites included: medieval burgage plots (Site 9); a late nineteenth-century public slaughterhouse (Site 19); a nineteenth-century, or earlier, brewery (Site 20); and a late nineteenth century auction mart (Site 21).
