Abstract

The series of archaeological investigations form part of a wider planning application (ref. 10/08/0187) for the construction of a new link road between the Freckleton Street railway crossing, and King Street where it meets Montague Street, which was subject to a photographic survey of the route corridor in 2009. A desk-based assessment (DBA), carried out in 2007 by Edgerton Lea Consultancy Ltd, had identified a number of potential heritage assets, including Nos 53 and 61 King Street, which were recorded by historic building investigations (OA North 2008; 2013) prior to demolition. The DBA also suggested that the southern half of the road corridor within the King Street block was formerly occupied by a Catholic Chapel and burial ground (Egerton Lea 2007; 2008). However, a limited programme of trial trenching to the rear of 53 King Street conducted by OA North in 2008 encountered no evidence for a burial ground.
