Report Summary:

This is a desk based assessment of part of the medieval borough of Longtown [at the Outdoor Education Centre] and an area of adjacent fields. Evidence from archaeological investigations and building recording was compiled and documentary and cartographic sources were reviewed. An assessment of a proposed development was made.

It was concluded that there is moderate potential for the survival of buried remains related to medieval urban occupation and defences within the area of the proposed developments. It is possible that evidence for medieval occupation survives in this area in the form of occupation deposits within tenement plots. It is also possible that remains of the medieval town defences survive in this area, probably in the form of a truncated bank.
