Manning Elliot are currently preparing a planning application to redevelop a large area of land at Southend Road, Penrith, Cumbria (area centred NY 5163 2987) for commercial and residential purposes, as an extension to the town of Penrith. Following a desk-based assessment carried out by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North 2005), a verbal recommendation was made by Cumbria County Council’s Historic Environment Service (CCCHES) to undertake further archaeological work where feasible; much of the outlined application area is currently in use as a car park or for other commercial or leisure facilities. The only available space for evaluation trenching was the site of the early eighteenth century bowling green, adjacent to the west side of the former Two Lions Public House, which is proposed as gardens for residential properties. This information will contribute to the planning application and may be used to inform decisions regarding any requirements for archaeological considerations prior to development.
