Abstract

Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned by Mr Wigglesworth to undertake an archaeological desk-based assessment and walkover survey of land subject to a proposed nine-hole golf course (Planning Reference 05/0683) at Dover Lodge Farm, Chain Lane, Staining, Blackpool, Lancashire (NGR SD 35527 35825). The assessment, undertaken in March and April 2006, covered a radius of 1km from the centre of the proposed development site and included visits to the Lancashire Sites and Monuments Record, the Lancashire County Record Office, and consultation of OA North’s library. No sites with statutory designation were identified. The majority of the proposed development site consists of undeveloped agricultural land, the lower parts of which are likely to have been marshland until the advent of comprehensive post-medieval drainage schemes. The site is, however, thought to hold considerable archaeological potential. A number of prehistoric finds have been made in the vicinity of the study area, the most significant of which are a number of probable Bronze Age finds from Marton Mere, 1km west of the study area; these included a number of well-preserved canoes, or coracle-like boats.
