Abstract:
In May 2010 a new farm track was created around the edge of a motte and bailey castle at Hockleton Farm, Chirbury, Shropshire. The Archaeology Service, Shropshire Council, had previously carried out an archaeological field evaluation of the site. The evaluation comprised a geophysical survey and the excavation of a number of trial trenches on the line of the proposed new track. The geophysical survey identified a number of below-ground features both within and beyond the visible castle earthworks. The trial trenching identified a number of features in a trench to the northeast of the bailey, one of which produced medieval pottery of 12th - 14th century date from a charcoal rich deposit which gave a radiocarbon date of between 1290AD an 1420 AD. The construction of the new track was accompanied by an archaeological watching brief by the Archaeology Service. The watching brief recorded further details of the pit sampled in the evaluation, and located the remains of a former trackway which ran along the western side of the bailey. No other significant archaeological features or deposits were recorded
