Abstract:
A desk-based assessment and evaluation undertaken prior to re-development found evidence to support features visible on the OS 1st and 2nd Edn maps. Strong evidence for buildings in the form of wall foundations was found in each trench, and the character of the earliest of these building sequences, constructed from cobble and rubble, appears to be contiguous with the construction of the planned town by Robert Graham in the late C18. The cobbled surfaces within Building A suggest the large rectangular building was used as a barn or stables. The carbonised deposits and the presence of slag within trench 1, which appear to clearly predate the structures observed within, suggest some sort of industrial deposit indicative, perhaps of iron working? No evidence was found of medieval activity within any of the evaluation trenches, therefore it is possible that the medieval settlement did not extend to this area. No further work was recommended.
