Abstract:
Watching brief and trial trenching at Kedleston Hall, Derbyshire. Trial trenching was undertaken adjacent to the 19th-century grade II listed Saw Mill to inform management of the site. Archaeological deposits within three of the five trenches comprised made ground layers associated with the levelling of the yard area to the north of the building. To the east of the building was a large cut feature, backfilled with redeposited subsoil and rubble/clinker layers. The purpose of this feature was unclear; it may have been associated with construction of the building. The final trench to the south of the Saw Mill contained 20th-century services, including water and drainage pipes and a phone cable. A layer of grey clay containing wood chips was encountered below the upper layers of made ground, suggesting it had been associated with the operation of the Saw Mill. A watching brief was undertaken on works to extend the car park adjacent to Kedleston Hall. A Royal Signals Camp was located in this area during WWII. Excavation of the new access road and feeder lanes revealed very few archaeologically significant remains or deposits. Two areas of compacted cinder-type material interpreted as the remains of the hardstanding surface for the 1939-1945 camp; a length of buried electricity cable; and the right-angled corner of a wall foundation interpreted as being associated with the barracks of the 1939-1945 camp were identified.
