Abstract:
Prior to a proposed residential development (Planning Application Number 4/04/2413) at Castle Mews, Coach Road, Whitehaven, Cumbria (centred NX 9770 1775) by Thomas Armstrong (Construction) Ltd, Cumbria County Council Archaeology Service requested a desk-based assessment and visual inspection, followed by an archaeological evaluation. Following the acceptance of a project design for this work (Appendix 1), OA North was commissioned to undertake the work in November 2004. Three evaluation trenches, measuring 25m by 1.7m, were excavated across the site, in order to examine 5% of the development area of approximately 2600m². All three trenches revealed archaeological remains, including cobbled surfaces, and walls in Trenches 1 and 3. Most of the cobbled surfaces exposed seemed to be paths running alongside walls, with the exception of the surface 14 within Trench 2, which appeared to represent a substantial courtyard. The wall in Trench 1 relates possibly to part of the earliest buildings seen on the cartographic sources covering the development area, which date to the late eighteenth century. The walls revealed in Trench 3 appear to be part of the building to the south of Site 08 on the Ordnance Survey 1st edition (1865), and may perhaps be best interpreted as part of the riding school, with the courtyard in Trench 2 possibly used as an exercise area. The putative fountain or lamp post (Site 25), which is considered to be of local significance, is also at risk from the proposed development during construction, predominantly due to plant movement across site. It is also likely to be moved during the development to allow excavation of the area where it is located presently.
