Introduction

Clevelode image

The primary purpose of this project (WCM101600) is to review the historic environment of part of the River Severn in the light of the modern emergence of river transportation of aggregates in order to overcome environmental objections based, for instance, on the unsuitability of local roads and the proximity of local settlements. This project is targeted on that area of the river (ie to the south of Worcester) where this practice is already in evidence, and where there is expected to be increasing pressure for large-scale extraction in the future.

The survey zone is a 29km (18 mile) length of the River Severn stretching from the city river bridge in Worcester (NGR SO 847548) southwards to Tewkesbury (NGR SO 882328), and encompasses the width of the river within its banks and the strip of publicly accessible land on either bank, the latter up to a maximum 30m-wide corridor from the top of the river-bank. Strategically this project extends the assessment of heritage assets in the Severn estuary being carried out by the RCZA of the archaeology of the Severn Estuary into an inland waterway.
