Abstract:
Addyman Archaeology completed an evaluation in relation to the proposed development of an irregular shaped area of grassland and car park adjacent to Barrhead Road in Paisley. The site is overlooked from the E by Blackhall House, a category B listed building with origins in the 16th century. A chapel associated with Blackhall or its predecessor is purported to have lain to the N and W of the proposed development, making it likely that further structures existed between, or around the two. Cartographic research indicated that whilst the site may have been occupied in the medieval period, areas remained on the whole undeveloped post-production of the 1st edition Ordnance Survey maps. A large care home named 'Castle House' was erected between 1979 and 1985, but it was unclear how extensive and intrusive the foundations for this were, whilst significant areas of the site appear to have survived free of modern development. The archaeological evaluation resulted in the opening of 16 specifically placed linear trenches totalling 603.36m2, or almost exactly 6% of the total area to be developed. The evaluation revealed large areas of the site to contain deep deposits of industrial made-ground, whilst construction and subsequent demolition of Castle House had caused significant disruption across much of the site. No artefacts of pre-19th century date were recovered, although a number of walls were revealed - one of which may be medieval in date.
