Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation at Parkfields, Weobley, Herefordshire, in an area to the south of the early 17th century house. The Parkfields property has been identified as being part of the early medieval churchyard component of Weobley. The area of the church, including Parkfields, seems to have formed the core of Weobley prior to the construction of the castle and the founding of the borough. The lane to the north of the property seems to have originally been part of the road from the village of Dilwyn, to the north-east and is referred to as the ''Queen''s Highway'' in 1698. Two 5.0 metre by 2.0 metre trenches were excavated to coincide with the centre of the site of the proposed dwelling and the associated garage. The only feature discovered was a shallow gully running north-south across the cutting measuring 0.45m across and 0.1m deep. Other than 19th century pottery from the topsoil, no artefacts were recovered from either cutting. The gully, while not substantial, may just possibly be associated with a pre-Norman core of Weobley which is likely to have been in this area. To the east of the site, the feature known as the Town Ditch may be associated with the Domesday park at Weobley rather than with any defensive system. The report on an excavation of this area in 1983 in included as an appendix to this report.
