Abstract

Lingley Mere Business Park Development Company submitted a planning proposal for the development of land at Lingley Mere, near Warrington, Cheshire (NGR SJ 5580 8994). To inform the initial stages of the planning process, OA North undertook a desk-based assessment (2004), which identified a number of sites of archaeological potential within and around the proposed development site. Those that lay closest to the development site included a post-medieval farm (Site 10), two cropmarks likely to be ponds (Sites 11 and 12), and a wood, possibly of medieval origin (Site 19). A postmedieval mill (Site 13) and a kiln (Site 14) lay close to, although just south of, the proposed development area. Accordingly, following the advice of Cheshire County Council Historic Environment Service (CCCHES), the local planning authority requested, as a condition of the development, that an archaeological watching brief be maintained on those intrusive groundworks close to these sites. White Young Green Consulting Ltd, acting on behalf of the Lingley Mere Business Park Development Company, commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to undertake the works required to satisfy the planning conditions.
