Abstract:
This report contains the results of a programme of archaeological monitoring and recording undertaken during refurbishment of the property known as No. 26, Town Walls. No. 26 is a Grade II Listed building located along the alignment of the medieval town walls. The areas of potential archaeological interest comprised reductions of ground levels in the kitchen and recording in the cellar areas. The watching brief monitored the removal of the quarry tiles which lay on a compacted sandy earth floor. No archaeological deposits were disturbed. The excavation was minimal, revealing only 19th century or later deposits associated with the previous laying of the quarry tiled floor. The main internal fabric of the basement area is hand-made brick but sandstones form the basal layers of seven of the elevations. A drawn record was undertaken of all basement elevations which included sandstone fabric. Observations made inside the property, together with cartographic evidence, suggest the property was constructed before the 1830s period. The house appears to have once formed two properties and the whole subsequently faced in brick gives the impression of a single phase of construction. The mix of sandstones and brickwork in the basement areas suggests that the sandstone fabric located within the house is a mix of medieval and later building stone derived from the demolition of nearby sections of the Town Wall in the late 18th century, which has been re-used in the construction of No. 26.
