Abstract:
Britannia Archaeology Ltd was commissioned by Stratus Environmental Ltd to undertake an archaeological desk-based assessment of the site of the former Gas Works at land off Gas House Drove, Brandon Suffolk (NGR: TL 78868 86570) The assessment has identified a moderate potential for sub-surface archaeology dating to the Neolithic period and a high potential for late 19th century and 20th century remains associated with the former gas works. The potential for Anglo-Saxon and medieval finds or features is low to moderate given the significant levels of occupation activity during these periods in the search area. The assessment site is located away from the focus of this activity, but could easily be part of the agricultural or industrial landscape outside of the town. The potential for all other periods is considered to be low and the historic maps show the site probably remained in agricultural use until the mid-19th century. The site has undergone at least four phases of development from initial construction of the town gas works in the 1860s, expansion in the early 20th century, alteration in the 1960's or 1970s from coal gas to natural gas and finally closure and substantial demolition in the 1980s. The potential for any sub-surface archaeology pre-dating the mid-19th century is likely to be low due to the development of the site from the mid-19th century onwards, the unknown density of old service trenches and depth of site truncation during demolition. The potential for the preservation of remains associated with the gas works is high.
