Abstract:
Ecus Ltd. were commissioned by Consortium Living in November 2015 to undertake a programme of archaeological recording at Park Street as part of the Castleward Urban Village regeneration scheme in Derby, situated at NGR 435988 335627. The programme of archaeological works was undertaken between 17/11/2015 and 14/12/2015 and comprised a structural watching brief during the exposure and consolidation of an extant canal tunnel beneath Park Street. The canal tunnel historically facilitated the continuation of the Bemrose Arm of the Derby Canal beneath Park Street, shortly beyond which it terminated at a wharf between Bemrose and Son Print Works and the Canal Street Iron Works. This canal arm was in decline during the twentieth century, had become disused by the 1950s and was subsequently lost beneath development by the end of the century. The tunnel appears to have been redundant by the early twentieth century when the entrance from Bemrose and Son Print Works was partially blocked, preventing access from canal boats. The tunnel was fully blocked off at both ends during the mid to late twentieth century, leaving the main structure in situ beneath Park Street. During the course of the archaeological recording the arch of the tunnel was removed and silt and rubble from the preceding demolition cleared from the interior of the canal enabling a record of its fabric and construction to be made. The masonry walls of the canal were left in situ and the interior back filled with a compacted stable material.
