Abstract:
In May 2013 the Field Services Section of the Clwyd-Powys Archaeological Trust (CPAT) carried out a watching brief on the site of a new substation on the south side of Whittington Road, on the outskirts of Oswestry in Shropshire (SJ 3036 3058). The work involved the relocation of the original substation to a new site immediately adjacent, which had previously been arable land. It occupied an area of around 3.2ha, bounded to the north by the B4580 Whittington Road, to the west by Harlech Road and to the east by the A5. The only features identified during the watching brief were a series of land drains which probably date to the later part of the post-medieval period. A few sherds of medieval pottery were recovered from the topsoil which had probably been introduced during manuring of the fields.
