Introduction

3-6 Ditchmore Lane, Stevenage, Hertfordshire. Programme of Archaeological Investigation (OASIS ID: heritage1-149311)

As the result of a condition on the planning consent for the refurbishment of numbers 3 and 4 Ditchmore Lane, Stevenage, Hertfordshire, to create residential accommodation, the refurbishment of number 5 to create staff accommodation and training facilities, the refurbishment and extension of number 6 to provide hostel accommodation, and the erection of five single storey dwellings in the existing gardens, the Heritage Network was commissioned by the owners to undertake a programme of archaeological investigation.

The programme includes the recording of the existing buildings on the site, and the evaluation of the archaeological potential of the rear gardens by trial trenching. The present interim report covers the evaluation stage and provides sufficient information to allow the LPA to consider whether or not the development groundworks can be allowed to proceed. Four trial trenches were excavated across the site of the proposed development. In addition, the excavation of five percolation test-pits was monitored.
