Abstract

OA North was asked by Lancaster City Council to undertake a survey of the extant Wery Wall, a surviving fragment of the late Roman coastal fort wall, and the adjacent Roman bath house remains located on the eastern scarp of Castle Hill, Lancaster (SD 47480 62030). The wall and bath house have sustained limited damage and decay since they were excavation in the 1950s and 1970s, and the exposed masonry is now in need of stabilisation and conservation works. The survey is required to provide a mitigative record of the extant structural remains in advance of these works and to inform future conservation works and presentation of the site. The monument is a scheduled ancient monument, and the archaeological recording is a condition of Scheduled Monument Consent (SM 34987). The Wery Wall is also a Grade II Listed Building (No. 383345).
