Abbots Brow and Old Weigh Station, Kirkby Lonsdale - Evaluation

Tinsley, Adam (2015) Abbots Brow and Old Weigh Station, Kirkby Lonsdale - Evaluation. Project Report. OA North. (Unpublished)




In June 2015, Oxford Archaeology (OA) North were commissioned by Mrs Gill Hardy to undertake a programme of archaeological evaluation ahead of development in the vicinity of Abbots Brow, Kirkby Lonsdale (SD 6122 7880). The programme of works involved the excavation of two trenches, one in each of two separate locations, in order to sample the areas ahead development of both sites. It was required as part of the planning permission for the development, issued by the Cumbria County Council Historic Environment Service (CCCHES), due to the archaeological potential of the site, falling within the wider conservation area of the historic town of Kirkby Lonsdale. Excavation of the trenches revealed no significant archaeological remains and only late post-medieval levelling deposits, relating to the landscaping of the garden associated with the premises, and modern structural features relating to a demolished commercial garage.
