Abstract

Following a proposal by Mall Associates on behalf of Mr I B Hodson to demolish Canal House (SD 59430 18814) and build a new property (Planning Application No 04/01318/FUL), a programme of archaeological recording was requested by Chorley Borough Council. A verbal brief for the work was issued to Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) by Lancashire County Archaeology Service (LCAS). The date of Canal House is uncertain, however it is thought to be contemporary with the Leeds and Liverpool canal, completed in 1777, and it appears on the 1847 First Edition OS mapping. The house is set back from the canal on Knowley wharf, which was used for most of the nineteenth century for the loading and unloading of goods. The project was to consist of a level I-type Survey (RCHME 1996), which comprised a photographic record and written description of the outside of the building. The work was carried out on 14th February 2005.
