Abstract:
A Programme of archaeological assessment works was undertaken on a development area at Bay Street, Port Glasgow (centred NGR: NS32577441) in respect to the proposed development of ground surrounding the existing brick built conversion of Gourock Ropeworks. The Test Pitting exercise encountered human remains within Area A to the east of the Ropeworks while Area B to the west was found to be archaeologically sterile. The subsequent strip in Area A uncovered the 19th century cemetery boundary wall and identified the survival of in situ graves along the western side of the development footprint. Disarticulated and disturbed human remains were recovered from 20th century demolition deposits and in situ graves were preferentially retained in situ.
