Abstract:
In April 2002 Oxford Archaeology North (OAN), undertook a watching brief programme of watching brief within the grounds of Whalley C of E Primary School, Lancashire (SD 732 361) on behalf of Abbey Holford Rowe. The aim of the watching brief was to establish the existence and location of any archaeological remains. This comprised the recording any principal architectural features in plan that may pertain to medieval settlement in the area due to the close proximity of both the parish church of St Mary and All Saints and the remains of Whalley Abbey (Figure 1). None of the trenches excavated revealed any archaeological remains of any antiquity. In parts, Trenches 2, 8, and 9 revealed the original stone footings of the now demolished school building. The majority of the trenches were subject to contamination and disturbance due to the high volume of service trenches and manholes that peppered the site. It is possible, however, that due to the elevated location of the school building in relation to both Whalley Abbey and to a lesser extent, the church of St Mary and All Saints, that any archaeological features lay beneath the exposed surface of the trenches. With the exception of two sondages, the trenches were only excavated to a maximum depth of 0.6m and therefore it is highly likely that earlier remains may be preserved below this depth.
