Abstract

Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was invited by Ryder Landscape Consultants Ltd to undertake an archaeological and historical landscape survey of Padiham Memorial Park, (SD 7909 3369, approximate centre). This was intended to record and evaluate the archaeological and historical features within the park and to inform the management of the park and proposals for potential future developments. The project comprised a documentary study and an identification survey. The documentary study entailed a detailed investigation of the following sources: the Lancashire Historic Environment Record (HER); the National Monuments Record (NMR); primary and secondary sources held by Burnley Library and Preston Record Office; and the OA North Library. The identification survey was a rapid surface investigation to identify the existence, but not record in detail, the surface archaeological monuments within the study area, which were then located using a differential GPS system. Several new sites were added to the gazetteer as a result of the survey, these included former field boundaries, areas of mature trees representing areas of landscaping and two earthwork features of unknown date.
