Edge End Farm, Edge End Lane, Nelson, Lancashire- Watching Brief

Tonks, David (2006) Edge End Farm, Edge End Lane, Nelson, Lancashire- Watching Brief. Project Report. OA North. (Unpublished)




A watching brief was undertaken by Oxford Archaeology North on 12th December 2005 at Edge End Farm, Nelson, Lancashire (SD 8561 3671). Persimmon Homes Ltd propose to develop the site, which lies within an area of recognised archaeological potential, into residential dwellings. Following a request for an archaeological watching brief by the Lancashire County Archaeology Service, Oxford Archaeology North was commissioned to undertake the works during the topsoil stripping and overburden removal activity along the access road to the site. In the event, through circumstances beyond the control of Oxford Archaeology North, most of the groundworks were completed in the absence of an archaeological presence, and those that were conducted under archaeological observation yielded nothing of any archaeological significance.
