Abstract

A desktop assessment and archaeological evaluation was undertaken in July 2002 of the proposed development site on the premises of Holly Lodge, Moorend Farm, Thursby, Cumbria (centred at NY 3284 5031 - Fig 1), by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) on behalf of Senator Homes. The assessment comprised a desk-based survey of available documentary and cartographic sources; it highlighted the archaeological resource within and around the study area at Moorend Farm. In general, the identified archaeological material is of local importance, comprising typical examples of medieval to post-medieval agricultural and settlement features. In addition, there are numerous possible prehistoric sites in the vicinity indicating activity in the area at this time. Following on from the assessment, an evaluation, consisting of two trenches, was carried out on the site to determine the state of preservation of any archaeological remains. The evaluation demonstrated that the level of truncation from modern features was high and that the surviving features were all of post-medieval date.
