Abstract

Oxford Archaeology North was commissioned to undertake an archaeological watching brief during the restoration of a wall at Stock Green Farm, Bracewell, Lancashire (SD 8682 4898). The proposed development is on the site of a deserted medieval village and the site is a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The archaeological works were required as a condition of Scheduled Monument Consent. The work was carried out in June 2003. Stock is the site of an important deserted medieval village (SMR 3299). The Stock Green Farm house is believed to be on the site of the former manor house and there is an extensive field system extending out from hollow ways, linked into clearly defined house platforms. Considering the archaeological sensitivity of the site, and because the development works were in the immediate vicinity of the farm house, English Heritage required that an archaeological watching brief be carried out in the course of the establishment of the footings for the new wall. A permanent presence was maintained during all excavations in the course of the establishment of the footings for the new wall. A full photographic record in colour print and monochrome formats was made. Section drawings and plans were made of relevant areas of the trenches at appropriate scales. The trenches were located using taped measurements from existing walls.
