Abstract

Norman Jacksons Ltd requested that Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) undertake a building investigation of two barns and a shed at Braides Farm, Cockerham, Lancashire (SD 44346 51073) (Fig1), prior to their proposed conversion. Lancashire County Archaeological Service (LCAS) recommended a building investigation of English Heritage (2006) Level II standard, which included a rapid map regression in conjunction with a site investigation comprising written descriptions, an extensive photographic record, and drawings of the floor plans and sections. The investigation found that the three buildings were constructed over several phases, with two of the buildings, North and East Barns, representing at least four major phases of development each. These two structures, despite being disparate in materials and design, would appear to date from the late eighteenth or early nineteenth century, whilst the elongated Cow Shed to the west of the site would appear to represent a single construction phase dating to the early nineteenth century, which was subsequently followed by phases of small-scale alterations and repairs.
