Abstract

Oxford Archaeology North was commissioned by Lancashire County Property Group to undertake an archaeological watching brief on a proposed tarmacadam multi-use games area (Planning Application No. 05/03/0753), on land to the south of Singleton CE Primary School, Singleton, Lancashire (NGR SD 3830 3828). The watching brief was carried out to fulfil a planning condition on advice from the Lancashire County Archaeology Service (LCAS). The work was undertaken during August and September 2004. LCAS identified a building on the Ordnance Survey first edition map of 1847 within the area of the proposed development. However, no details are known regarding the origin or function of the building, only that by the second edition map of 1893 the building was no longer in existence. The site lies in an area of potential archaeological interest, with two Neolithic flint scatter sites located within 2km of the site, and a large number of Neolithic and Bronze Age sites located throughout the surrounding area.
