Abstract:
An archaeological assessment of Nazareth House, Preston New Road, Blackburn was carried out in March 2007 by J. M. Trippier Archaeological and Surveying Consultancy on behalf of Wyngates Property Service Limited prior to partial redevelopment of the site. The site currently contains modern buildings used as a convent , chapel and care home by the Sisters of Nazareth. The modern buildings presently occupying the site were not studied. The aims of the study were to assess the likely survival of remains from previous occupation of the site and their importance and to make any recommendations for further archaeological recording prior to the re-development of the site. A search of the known archaeological features in the area was carried out together with a search of documentary and cartographic sources and a walk-over survey of the site. It was considered that due to the steep gradient of the site and subsequent siteworks and redevelopment the potential for the survival of remains from the prehistoric, Roman and medieval periods was low. The use of the land for agricultural purposes and stone quarrying during the post-medieval period was identified but is not considered to warrant further investigation. An historical and archaeological context for a mid 19th century house, Beardwood Cliff, and its gardens which formerly occupied the site was identified. It was noted that, as this was built by Daniel Thwaites, a member of a local well-known brewing family and M.P., it was of local significance and it was recommended that an archaeological recording of the surviving remains of the gardens be carried out before the site is redeveloped.
