Abstract:
The evaluation identified the location of former 18th century wall lines which appear to represent the west wall of a building belonging to the adjacent Barley Mow Public House and the former boundary between these two properties. Sometime after 1786 the study site was expanded eastwards at the expense of the Inn and this appears to coincide with construction of the saltworks. Trial trenching confirmed the presence of the former brick saltworks as situated within the south-west corner of the study site. This was found to survive as the partially demolished walled remains of a complex brick built structure presently covered by a thick layer of demolition debris. Historic mapping indicates that the site frontage along the north-east side of Hanbury Street comprised a terraced building in the late 18th century and that this was likely to have been incorporated into the construction of the saltworks sometime between 1786 and 1884. The saltworks represent an example of one of a number of small industrial salt production factories that existed in Droitwich during the 18th/19th century. It appears from the cartographic and documentary sources that the saltworks were abandoned before 1903 and certainly by 1912. The site continued as industrial premises after this date with some expansion by 1927. The depth of deposits across the study site has shown that the northern half has been consolidated with waste material (clinker) presumably produced from fossil fuels used in the production of the salt.
