Abstract:
In June 2007, North Pennines Archaeology Ltd was commissioned by Kim Moore of KC Properties to undertake an archaeological evaluation in advance of a proposed redevelopment of land adjacent to West Farm, Chopwell, Gateshead, Tyne and Wear (NGR NZ 1214 5866). Newcastle City Council had been consulted regarding a planning application submitted for a proposed development of nine dwellings to be constructed on the land, with a new access road and a detached double garage. A recent desk-based assessment of the site undertaken by NPAL (Peters 2007) highlighted that the site lies within the presumed extent of Chopwell medieval grange, and also lies within close proximity to Chopwell Hall and its earlier predecessor. Previous archaeological works in the area have failed to find traces of either the hall or medieval grange, but research has shown the archaeological importance of the area. As a consequence, the Tyne and Wear Archaeology Officer, Jennifer Morrison, requested that three evaluation trenches to be excavated 10m in length and 1.5m wide by machine down to natural subsoil and then hand-cleaned and recorded. The site lies within an area of high medieval and post-medieval potential, so the work was required by Newcastle City Council's Archaeology Officer, Jennifer Morrison. The evaluation produced no structural, environmental or archaeological remains. The trench was cleaned and recorded, and then backfilled on the verbal instruction of Jennifer Morrison. No further work will be required on this part of the site.
