Introduction

Lady Manners School, Bakewell, Derbyshire. Archaeological Works (OASIS ID: archaeol5-374687; archaeol5-384775)

In September 2019, Archaeological Research Services Ltd was commissioned to undertake an archaeological works at Lady Manners School, Shutts Lane, Bakewell, Derbyshire. The archaeological works formed part of the planning condition for the construction of thirty six affordable dwellings, attenuation basin and the establishment of new playing fields for Lady Manners School. The site lies within Bakewell's medieval field system of ridge and furrow, which can be seen in fields near to the proposed development area.

The first phase of works, an archaeological evaluation, took place between 30th September - 4th October 2019 and then again on 4th - 8th November 2019. The evaluation comprised of 13 trenches which were targeted to assess the presence of archaeology in the footprints of the proposed housing. Three trenches (5, 9 and 13) produced clear evidence of archaeological deposits consisting of medieval cultivation terraces and a possible wall.

Between 13th - 24th January 2020, Archaeological Research Services returned to site to undertake an archaeological strip, map and sample excavation. Excavations recorded evidence of ridge and furrow cultivation and a stone floor surface overlaying a stone built culvert.
