Abstract

Corpus Christi Catholic High School, Fulwood, Preston, Lancashire in conjunction with the Ladyewell Shrine, will be running an archaeological summer school for the high school students during the 2004 school summer break. They will be carrying out fieldwork in the form of excavations at the site believed to contain the remains of the earliest church associated with the Ladyewell Shrine, Fernyhalgh, Preston (NGR 5553 3356). The site is located within the field immediately to the west of the Shrine and is situated in a rural location approximately 2.5km north-east of Preston city centre and 200m west of the M6 motorway. Aerial photography has revealed cropmarks in the field which appear to indicate a rectangular structure. Corpus Christi High School commissioned Oxford Archaeology North to evaluate the site in the form of a magnetometer survey in July 2004. It is intended that the results will help in targeting trenches for the summer school excavation.
