Introduction

Archaeological Excavations at Milken Lane, Ashover, Derbyshire (OASIS ID: archaeol5-341038 and archaeol5-321130)

In October 2018, Archaeological Research Services Ltd was commissioned by Mr Roger Hollingworth to undertake an archaeological excavation on land at Milken Lane, Ashover, Derbyshire. The site lies adjacent to the medieval core of Ashover. Archaeology is a material concern within the planning process and a condition of planning consent for residential housing required that a programme of archaeological works be undertaken and concluded prior to occupation. Previous works on this site by Archaeological Research Services Ltd encompassed a Heritage Impact Assessment (HIA), a Geophysical Survey and archaeological trial trenching. Excavations were focused on an area of former lead mining activity and were undertaken between the 22nd and 30th October 2018. They revealed three back-filled mine shafts and their associated enclosure walls, along with the fragmentary remains of a small building, previously identified by archaeological trial trenching. Other features were also identified on the site and included a shallow burial pit, tree boles, and gullies.
