Abstract:
In August 2015 trial trenching was carried at St. Andrews parish Centre, Church Walk, Pershore as part of a planning application for extension of existing hardstanding area and the erection of a detached garage. The natural substrate, an orange sandy-gravel was only reached at the base of trench 2, this was shown to be overlain by an undated deposit of predominantly stiff clay, this was also found, but not bottomed in trench 2. The only finds comprised some fragments of limestone (?building material), and an assemblage of animal bone, all of which indicates a level of human activity. This clay deposit was overlain in both trenches by a succession of two thick, seemingly homogenous garden deposits each producing a range of residual medieval, post-medieval and modern finds comprising pottery, glass and roof tile. Animal bone was also recovered from three of the contexts, but no human bone was recorded. The varied range of dateable finds within the assemblage from these garden soils would suggest continual turning and increasing of the soil over a prolonged period of manuring and gardening. The stiffness of the underlying clay deposit and the lack of residual finds within this context suggests that these gardening activities did not penetrate beyond these overlying deposits. In trench 3 the natural substrate was not reached, instead immediately below the garden topsoil was an insitu cobbled surface divided by brick edging or the remains of walling, to the north of this lay the partially exposed remains of what appears to be a former culvert, identified by a row of arched bricks. These features continued beyond the edges of the trench indicating that they formed part of a much larger area of paving, this would be consistent with a road way shown on the historic maps (OS 1885 and 1904) leading to a building (stable and cartshed) adjoining the side of the church.
