Abstract:
An archaeological building survey of Cable Street Warehouse, Lancaster (SD 4761 6201) was undertaken by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) in response to the request of the Lancaster City Archaeologist. A level I-type survey was carried out which consisted of a brief physical inspection of the building combined with written and photographic records. The buildings to the south are known to have been owned by Captain Henry Fell, and at least partially built in c1759 by Richard Gillow. The warehouse is thought to relate to these buildings, probably taking advantage of the position of the quay at that time. It was built in an area of Lancaster that was rapidly built on during the expansion of the city in the eighteenth century, and was connected to the quay at this point. The investigation of the structure revealed that the warehouse had probably been raised in height on more than one occasion, as well as being extended to both the west and north. The east side had been recently remodelled and modernised, with additional partition walls, windows and outshoots added. A probable date of 1791 inscribed into a roof timber on the west side was identified, although it was considered possible that this might be part of a larger timber mark. Numbers One and Three Cable Street are an extremely significant buildings in terms of the development and expansion of Lancaster and the warehouse demonstrates the connections to the quayside were probably of particular significance. It is not known when the warehouse was first built but it appears to be present in 1778, shortly after the enlargement and remodelling of Numbers One and Three Cable Street.
