Abstract:
ECUS Ltd were commissioned to undertake an archaeological evaluation on land at Abertanat Farm, Llanyblodwell, Oswestry, Shropshire SY10 8NA situated at National Grid Co-ordinates SJ 25093 21972 . Planning permission (16/00830/MWA) has been gained from Shropshire County Council for the construction of a 750Kw on-farm anaerobic digestion (AD) facility at Abertanat Farm. The permission is subject to Condition 7 relating to archaeology. The site work was undertaken by Daniel Bray and Paul White between 19th and 21st July 2016. Six 20 m by 1.5 m trenches were excavated across the area of the proposed feedstock clamps. The trenches were located in a random pattern to provide good coverage across the area and represents 5% of the previously undisturbed area of the site. Despite the archaeological potential of the site highlighted in the historic environment desk based assessment as low no features or deposits of archaeological interest were present in the excavated trenches. There was no evidence of prehistoric or Romano-British rural settlement or any evidence of medieval or post-medieval activity relating to Abertanant Farm. The River Tanat is located to the east of the site and at its closest is 123 m metres. The topography around the site indicates that the river once ran across the site. The evaluation trenches revealed numerous layers of alluvium with sand and gravel lenses. There were no finds or features within the alluvium to indicate when these were deposited.
