Abstract:
An evaluation was carried out on the site of the Cambrian Railways land, Oswald Road, Oswestry to determine the location and state of preservation of Wat''s Dyke. The trench was situated in a former rail yard in an area which had been less intensively developed than the majority of the remaining study area. The trench was orientated northeast - southwest and the Dyke was exposed in the southwest end of the trench. Although none of the original bank material had survived at all, the ditch itself was fairly well preserved. No artefacts or organic remains were recovered. A full profile of the feature was not excavated on health and safety grounds, however, its general character and orientation were recorded and it is likely that further lengths of the ditch survive well in this part of the site. In addition to the trenching programme a comprehensive walkover survey of the railyard site was also undertaken. The remains of a carriage shed and a loading wharf were recorded. The concrete floor of the former survived, in which three pairs of rails and a number of associated iron fixtures were located. An aerial photograph of the site depicts the carriage shed and several smaller wooden buildings to the south as well as a building mirroring the station though no evidence of these structures was found during the walkover survey.
