A planning application (Planning Application No 5/05/0030) was submitted by the Underley Estate to the South Lakeland District Council (SLDC), for the proposed conversion and re-development of Underley Home Farm, Kearstwick, Kirkby Lonsdale, Cumbria (SD 6083 7990). The SLDC imposed a planning condition for a programme of archaeological investigation to be undertaken prior to the development of the agricultural buildings taking place, and in response the Cumbria County Historic Environment Service (CCHES) made recommendations for a Level III-type English Heritage Building Investigation to be carried out. The development programme comprises two phases and, as a consequence, the building subject to this report is known as the Phase 1 building or warehouse. The remaining buildings subject to the planning condition (Phase 2), are to be investigated at a later date, and are outside the scope of this report. The warehouse is located within the Grade-II listed south range of Underley Home Farm (listed building number 75259). It is the central of three buildings in this range, and is of three storeys in height. Although treated as a separate building to that lying to its west, the documentary research provides evidence to suggest that it was in fact, part of the western building (a water-powered mill), and provided warehouse/workshop facilities for the mill.
