Abstract:
A single evaluation trench was located within Central Court, oriented NE-SW and measuring 6.00m x 2.00m. This indicated continuous land use within this area of Bridgnorth from the 15th to the 20th century. The earliest evidence revealed was a buried soil located c.0.70m below the existing ground surface, which produced several sherds of c.15th century partially glazed pottery. The paucity of finds and features suggests that, during the late medieval period, this was a cleared area of possible horticultural use. Dating from the 18th/19th century were a number of domestic waste and rubbish pits, the evidence suggesting these were probably in use for only a limited period. These pits truncated or wholly cut away large sections of the late medieval soil horizon. The structural remains discovered on the site appear to correspond in alignment to a one-room rectangular building shown on the Ordnance Survey 1st edition map of 1891. This building is also shown, partially altered and extended, on an OS map of Bridgnorth dated c.1960.
