Abstract:
AC was commissioned by Charles Pugh to undertake an archaeological, ecological and structural assessment of Scott's Quay in advance of proposed consolidation works to the Upper Quay. A brief setting out the requirements of the assessment was provided by Natural England (NE) and The Historic Environment Service, Cornwall Council (HES), reflecting the ecological and archaeological sensitivity of the site and its inclusion in the Goongillings Farm Higher Stewardship Scheme holding. Scott's Quay is at the southern tip of Goongillings Farm (SW 7379 2728) at the convergence of the Polpenwith and Polwheveral Creeks, in the upper reaches of the Helford Estuary. The assessment was undertaken between January and August 2012, it recorded: -The 19th Century access track leading from Goongillings Farm to the Quay -The 19th Century Lower Quay built by Charles Scott to service the mining and quarrying industries -Two quarries associated with the c19th century Quay -The Upper Quay -The intertidal and terrestrial habitats and related legislative constraints -The structural failing of significant parts of the Upper Quay The assessment recommended limited consolidation works to maximise the longevity and appreciation of the Quay without reducing the historic integrity of the structure or incurring major additional planning considerations and costs. Consolidation works included: -Underpinning the western quay wall -Recovery and reuse of tumbled coping stones and gate post -Rebuilding modern, poorly repaired walling, reinstating the running bond and a landward batter -Excavation of non-draining clayey-silts and backfill with granite chippings behind the walling -Reinstatement of surface with stockpiled soil, consolidating turf and seeded geotextile An archaeological watching brief of the consolidation works did not identify any significant additional archaeological findings.
