Introduction

Household Waste Recycling Centre Stainton Grove, County Durham. Historic Building Recording (OASIS ID: wessexar1-265588)

Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Atkins to undertake a programme of historic building recording at the Household Waste Recycling Centre, Stainton Grove, County Durham, centred on National Grid Reference (NGR) 407272, 518042. The site comprises part of a mid-20th century military camp, which has been redeveloped into a housing estate, industrial estate and the current Household Waste Recycling Centre. The survey was carried out following a previously produced Heritage Statement of the site.

The site contained six tank garages that were subject to a Historic England Level 3 survey which was conducted between the 29th – 30th September 2016. The tank garages have been identified as Romney sheds (or huts) associated with the development of the WWII, mid-20th century, military camp at Stainton Grove. The tank garages were largely intact suffering only minor alterations throughout the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Their form and massing remains unchanged and they are easily identifiable from an aerial photograph taken in 1946. Despite this level of preservation, little remained internally that attested to a historic military function.

The historic building recording archive is currently held in the Wessex Archaeology Sheffield Office under the project code 112771.
