Abstract

Following proposals by Persimmon Homes for a residential development (Planning Reference 1/04/0617) on the site of the former Sutton and Son Depot, Albert Street, Longtown, Cumbria (NGR NY 3823 6853), Cumbria County Council Historic Environment Service (CCCHES) issued a brief for a programme of archaeological investigation to be undertaken at the site. The development site covers a 0.67ha area of former industrial land to the south-east of Longtown’s eighteenth century planned town centre. Following submission of a project design and costs to meet the requirements of the CCCHES brief, Oxford Archaeology North was commissioned by Persimmon Homes to undertake an archaeological desk-based assessment and evaluation of the proposed development site. The desk-based assessment, undertaken in February 2006, covered a study area with a radius of 0.5km from the centre of the development site and included a visit to the Cumbria Record Office in Carlisle and consultation of the Cumbria Historic Environment Record in Kendal as well as of the OA North library. As a result of this research, nine Statutory Designated sites were identified within the study area: eight, Sites 10-17, are Grade II Listed Buildings; and one, Longtown Conservation Area (Site 18), lies to the west of the development site, and is a locally designated area.
