Abstract:
An archaeological building survey and watching brief was required as a condition of planning permission for reinstatement of the structure and internal/external remedial works following fire damage at the Swan and Royal Hotel, Castle Street, Clitheroe (NGR SD 7435 4184). The work was carried out on behalf of Marstons plc by J.M Trippier Archaeological and Surveying Consultancy. The building subject to the survey comprised a double pile 18th century coaching inn with an elongated stone built early 19th century threestorey wing placed centrally to the rear and at right angles to the inn. There were courtyards north and south of the rear extension. Further investigations revealed that the double pile building had been built in two phases; a west pile fronting Castle Street and in existence before 1740, although probably substantially rebuilt in the following decade, with an east pile being added before 1822 and the three-storey wing before 1842. At the time of survey the upper floors of the Inn had been damaged by fire and subsequent water ingress and the rear wing had been completely gutted by fire. Original internal features worthy of preservation or replication were three fireplaces and settles and windows and surrounds in the front rooms of the Inn and the cellar. A watching brief was carried out in the south courtyard where a base for a crane site was being excavated. This revealed the barrel vaulted roof of a stone built cesspit fed by a stone culvert from the Inn and earlier stone walls probably associated with agricultural outbuildings in the 18th Century Inn yard. No finds we discovered which enabled either of these to be dated.
