Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation was carried out at land adjacent Dog Walk, Hill Lane, Elmley Castle, Worcestershire, originally the coach house and stables to Park House, a former Elizabethan Mansion. The building survey found that the earliest surviving fabric was the rear wall of the existing building. This was built entirely of limestone and may represent the last remains of an earlier coach and stable building connected to the Elizabethan house. A number of features comprising limestone edging, paved areas and the remains of another stone building together formed the plan of an earlier yard area and access road. Documentary sources tell us that substantial modifications were carried out at Park House in 1702 which included the front of the house being moved from the south to the north. These changes, which led to the abandonment of the Elizabethan plan, would have necessitated a re-ordering of the existing road layout in order to connect the new access road from the front of the house to the existing area of the stable and coach house block. This was also rebuilt in brick with quoins at the same time whilst retaining the back wall of the existing building. A stone drain was also constructed, probably during this period. A second phase in the development of the coach house and stable was characterized by the construction of another hard standing in the form of a metalled surface. This activity is probably related to the extension (iron framing) added to the (south-east) front of the building during the mid-20th century (post OS 1923) when the building appears to have taken on a more industrial function. The gully feature identified at the north end of trench 2 was undated. Its alignment doesn't appear to correspond with any of the features identified during the investigation and it may have originally have functioned as an earlier drainage ditch and land boundary.
