Abstract

In total, 26 sites of archaeological interest were identified within the study area from the rapid desk-based research. Twenty-one sites (Sites 01-21) listed within The National Trust SMR had been previously identified within Lyme Park during an extensive historical landscape survey carried out by LUAU in 1997, which was updated and added to by OA North in 2006 and 2007. Two of the sites were identified during rapid desk-based research carried out by OA North in 2008 (Sites 22 and 26) and three sites were recorded in the Cheshire HER (Sites 23-25). The 26 identified sites comprised a possible cup marked grit-stone block (Site 20); two boundaries of possible medieval date (Sites 13 and 25); a Grade II listed seventeenth century vicarage (Site 23); a seventeenth century dry-stone wall surrounding Lyme Park (Sites 01-12 and 21); post-medieval drainage features (Sites 14 and 19); a shooting range (Site 16), with a sunken earth feature of unknown function and date nearby (Site 15); and two nineteenth century reservoirs (Sites 24 and 26) and an associated building (Site 22). There is also a modern pipeline (Site 18) and a marker for it (Site 17) towards the western extent of Lyme Park.
