Abstract: We present preliminary results from OH 18-cm ground state and OH 5-cm excited state observations carried out with the Multi-Element- Radio-Linked-Interferometer-Network (MERLIN) towards the star forming region S140-IRS1. The OH ground state line at 1665 MHz revealed 2 main regions of emission concentrated in 10 features. The 1665-MHz emission seems to be associated with the redshifted part of the CO outflow detected in the S140 complex and found to be centered on IRS1. Zeeman pairs were found accounting for a magnetic field strength of 5 mG in the NE and 7 mG in the SW feature.
