Abstract

Oldfield Design Ltd (on behalf of Longedge Developments Ltd) have made a planning application (HPK/2004/0186) to the High Peak Borough Council, for permission to convert an existing dwelling and develop the grounds to form seven apartments, seven detached dwellings, five social houses and four town houses at Burbage Hall, 95 & 97 Macclesfield Road, Buxton, Derbyshire (SK 0456 7294). The Development Control Archaeologist for High Peak Borough Council recommended that an archaeological evaluation should be undertaken “in view of the proximity of so many known sites of archaeological interest, including some of demonstrably national importance”. The Mesolithic and Neolithic occupation site of Lismore Fields (SK 0495 7320 / SM DR 278) is located c 400 m to the north-east of the proposed development area. Two small concentrations of Later Mesolithic flint were also recovered during archaeological mitigation works at Otterhole Farm (SK 0470 7326), c 200 m to the north-west. Buxton is known to have been an important Roman centre, and it is thought that a Roman road followed part of the line of Green Lane, c 60m south of the proposed development. Poole’s Cavern, c 500m to the south-east of Buxton, appears to be the site of bronze working between the second and fourth century AD.
