Abstract:
Northumberland County Council undertook a major regeneration programme in the town of Blyth. Part of this programme involved the regeneration of Blyth Links, the sand dunes to the south of the town. Upon the dunes are situated a complex of WWI and WWII coastal defence structures, collectively known as Blyth Battery. The proposed regeneration of Blyth Links included the repair of, and alterations to, the battery buildings. Addyman Archaeology were contracted by Northumberland County Council to undertake archaeological monitoring and recording works at Blyth Battery. The aim of the archaeological works was to create a record of the structures as existing, prior to any alterations being carried out. The work also involved the monitoring of any significant alterations to the buildings' fabric. The archaeological recording work included a comprehensive photographic survey of all the structures and an analytical up-grading of the survey drawings created by Simpson and Brown Architects, which were themselves based on the original construction drawings for the battery buildings. The report included a written description of all the structures on the site. The initial survey work was undertaken in December 2008. Further site inspections were carried out in January and March 2009, in order to assess the ongoing works and investigate a number of features of potential significance which were revealed during the site works. A targeted assessment of historic paint finishes was undertaken by Colin Mitchell-Rose. Additional historic paint schemes were identified during the stripping-out phase of the works and these were recorded by photographic survey.
