Introduction

Hindlip Hall, The Drive, Hindlip, Worcester (OASIS ID: cotswold2-270753)

An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology in April 2016 at Hindlip Hall, Worcester. The fieldwork was undertaken to fulfil a planning condition attached to planning consent for a new operations and communications centre with car parking, other facilities and associated works and water attenuation pond. The evaluation comprised the excavation of seven trenches. Archaeological interest in the site derived from its close proximity to a high concentration of archaeological remains, most notably an Iron Age and Roman settlement located to the immediate north-east of the site and an Iron Age pit alignment recorded immediately north-west of the site. The projected alignment of a Roman road traverses the north-western corner of the site. Geophysical survey did not identify any evidence for these features within the site. The evaluation identified a single undated, but probable post-medieval/modern ditch. Evidence for modern landscaping, most probably associated with the modern construction of an entranceway to the site was revealed throughout the northern part of the site. Despite the archaeological potential of the site, no evidence of Iron Age or Romano-British occupation or activity was found during the evaluation. No features or deposits pre-dating the post-medieval/modern period were observed and no artefactual material was recovered.
