Abstract:
Archaeological recording was carried out at Dodderhill Court, Crutch Lane, Elmbridge, Droitwich Spa, Worcestershire during development comprising the erection of a two-storey side extension. Historic mapping (OS 1885) shows the study site was one of two farms in the area called Hill Court each at the end of a road extending west from Crutch Lane, itself an earlier route-way. It seems likely that the study site, which by 1903 (OS Second Edition) was renamed Dodderhill Court, was a later replacement built in the style of a model farm. The architectural fabric of the building suggests it was created during the early 19th century. The farm buildings are arranged in a south-east facing U-shaped form with threshing barn, cow-house and stables around a fold-yard. A stone wall extending from this yard is fronted on the north side by a haw-haw, this separates the farmyard from the detached farmhouse situated to the south-west with the front facing west. Later a Dutch barn was erected to cover the yard and a range added to the south-east side, thereby enclosing the yard. A number of these buildings were eventually demolished during development in the 1980s or 1990s leaving only the west and north-west ranges surviving as converted offices and dwellings. No significant archaeological deposits were observed during the excavation, instead a sequence of three stratified homogenous layers were recorded comprising a natural clay, overlain by a relict subsoil and modern topsoil. The absence of any archaeological deposits and a lack of finds would suggest little human activity within the study site apart from that associated with occupation of the house from the 19th century.
