Abstract

Defence Estates proposed to upgrade existing accommodation at Fulwood Barracks, Preston, Lancashire, which comprised two modern pre-fabricated buildings in the northeast corner of the barracks (on the east side of Building 57) (NGR SD 5492 3179), as part of Project SLAM. The works involved the demolition of the existing buildings, and the construction of a new development on the site to provide junior ranks accommodation. The area of the proposed improvement works lies within the historic barracks (Site 01), and adjacent to the line of a known Roman road (Site 09); as a result the Lancashire County Archaeology Service (LCAS) requested that a desk-based assessment be undertaken prior to the improvement works being carried out, and a permanent presence watching brief be maintained during all groundworks. The desk-based assessment was researched in August 2004, and involved visits to the Lancashire County Record Office (LRO) in Preston, and the Queen’s Lancashire Regimental Museum at Fulwood Barracks. Information was also gathered from the Sites and Monuments Record (SMR) held by LCAS.
