Introduction

The Old Rectory, River Street, Pewsey, Wiltshire (OASIS ID: wessexar1-109911)

Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Quinlan and Francis Terry Architects on behalf of The Servants Fellowship International to undertake an archaeological watching brief during construction at The Old Rectory, River Street, Pewsey, Wiltshire. The watching brief was required as a condition of planning consent granted by Wiltshire Council for the construction of a two storey brick built library with a basement.. Monitoring of groundworks associated with the development proposals revealed a large build up of alluvial deposits overlying a single gully and the natural greensand. The curvilinear gully terminated within the excavated area and contained a single pottery sherd dating to the 12th to 13th centuries. The identification of the shallow gully within the Site has confirmed the continuation of 12th-13th century occupation in the immediate area. Contemporaneous with the medieval features found to the north of the Site, the gully is likely to be related to the medieval settlement of Pewsey to the north. The watching brief was carried out on the 2nd and the 3rd of August 2011.
