Abstract:
A programme of archaeological works was required at 19 Market Street, Stranraer, prior to redevelopment works, as part of the requirement of the issued planning consent. A level 1-2 standing building survey was undertaken on the 11th March and 1st April 2008 and an evaluation was carried out on the 2nd and 3rd April. With the exception of the eastern gable which is stone and mortar rubble construction the rest of the structure, which was red brick, probably dates to the early 20th century with later repairs and additions. The sequence of five trenches sited randomly across the proposed development area identified no significant archaeological features. Cobbling however, was located in a number of trenches and probably dated to the late Victorian period when the two building fronting onto Market St and Fisher Street respectively, became one building. A discreet deposit of waste associated with a clamp or lime kiln was also located in one small area of the site, indicating industrial actively in the vicinity. Clinker debris presumably from the nearby railway had been used to level the site on top of the cobbles prior to a concrete floor being laid. Although the site of our structure undoubtedly housed a small dwelling structure with a backland or garden area in the early to mid 1840's, no features, structures or finds relating to this period were located. There are no indications that the as it existed prior to demolition had ever been used as a dwelling.
