Abstract

In October 2003 the first phase of archaeological evaluation was carried out by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) of an area of proposed redevelopment at St John’s Precinct, Workington Town Centre, Cumbria (NY 0039 2862). The first phase consisted of a trench within the footings of the Presbyterian Church during its demolition. The evaluation follows a previous archaeological desk-based assessment undertaken by Oxford Archaeology North in December 2002. This identified the north-east corner of the proposed development area containing the church to be an area of high archaeological potential. This interim report details the results of the first phase evaluation. The trench contained a rubbish pit and foundations pertaining to the church. No other features of archaeological significance were located. However, the restrictive size and nature of the trench does not allow for a full understanding of the archaeology. Therefore, the remaining evaluation trenches require completion before an assessment of the archaeological potential and subsequent recommendations can be made.
