Abstract:
The groundworks associated with the development of the former Quay Travel Site, Kingsbridge were monitored and recorded by South West Archaeology (SWARCH) staff. The work conformed to a Written Scheme of Investigation (WSI) drawn up by SWARCH in consultation with the Devon County Historic Environment Service (HES) Excavation was carried out by a swing shovel equipped with a toothless grading bucket. The groundworks for the development necessitated level reduction of between 0.7m-0.9m. The area 10m NW-SE by 5m NE-SW subject to the watching brief was covered by modern tarmac and concrete floors at the level of existing adjoining pavements. Below the tarmac was a 0.5m thick layer of mixed modern levelling and below this a 30-40mm thick, hard surface of compact but crumbly dirty grey lime mortar. This was compressed directly onto a deposit of brown sandy clay, interpreted as a reclamation deposit relating to the creation of new quays from the 17th century; only the upper 0.2m of this was disturbed by groundwork. The foundations of walls were revealed, probably the rear walls of a building marked on the 1884 OS map.
