Abstract:
A planning application (13/00361/FUL) was submitted to Northumberland County Council for the construction of a two-storey extension (and change of use of the relevant plot of land) to the rear of Old Hall Cottage, Whittonstall (NGR NZ 07345 56955). The site is owned by Mr. Kevin Rooney who commissioned Vindomora Solutions on the 15th May 2013 to undertake the archaeological recording necessary to fulfil planning conditions. Old Hall Cottage lies within an area associated with the medieval manorial settlement of Whittonstall. Northumberland Conservation have advised that planning permission should be granted, with the condition attached requiring a scheme of archaeological works consistent with the objectives of paragraphs 141, 176 and 203-206 of the National Planning Policy Framework. As such, a watching brief was put in place to monitor all ground-works relating to the development that could have a potential impact on archaeological remains. The initial ground reduction was monitored on the 3th-4th June 2013 and no archaeological remains were observed. Natural substrate, boulder clay over soft shale, was cut into by two late post-medieval/modern service runs. Over the clay was a layer of subsoil with rubble inclusions, over which was a thick deposit of topsoil. Natural substrate was uncovered across the entire development area, thus concluding that further ground-works for foundation cuts and new services will be of no impact to archaeological remains within the current development boundary.
