Abstract:
An archaeological desk top assessment was undertaken by Mike Napthan Archaeology in November 2011 to provide a synopsis of evidence relating to the site of an intended housing development on land to the north of Old Northwick Farm, Northwick, Claines, Worcester. The site lies on the edge of the flood-plain of the River Severn to the north of the City of Worcester, close to the historic hamlet of Northwick. The area remains semi-rural within the flood plain, but the higher ground is almost entirely occupied by housing developments of the 1930s and later. The site is primarily open rough pasture land on the sloping edge of the floodplain, with a boundary along the line of the first river terrace. Historical and cartographical sources indicate that most of the site lay within the common field of Northwick prior to enclosure, and that its character remained as a number of small parcels and strips well into the 19th C. The agricultural use seems to have been principally pasture, but most of the site was used for orchards in the 19th Century. No historic building or occupation sites have been identified within the site boundaries despite a wealth of cartographic evidence running back to the early 18th Century. There are no recorded find-spots within the development area or its immediate environs, and the potential for buried archaeological remains or artefacts appears very low.
