Abstract:
Two evaluation trenches were opened within gardens to the rear of ''Wildgoose Chase'', Broad Street, Weobley, located within the footprint of the proposed new dwelling. Cartographic evidence shows that the site had previously been occupied by four narrow burgage plots shown on the Weobley tithe map of 1838, which were subsequently cleared in the mid-19th century when the site was converted into an orchard. Evidence of an accumulation of post-medieval garden soils was noted in Trench 1, disturbed by modern landscaping activity. Natural deposits were observed at a shallow depth, occurring at 0.5m at the E end of the trench and gradually deepening towards the W end of the trench. A significant accumulation of garden soils and a number of rubbish pits of probable post-medieval date were encountered within Trench 2, reflecting the usage of the area as garden plots lying to the rear of the burgage properties which previously occupied the site as shown on the Weobley tithe map of 1838 and were demolished in the mid 1840s. These garden soils were evidently of considerable depth, extending down to the base of the trench. No significant archaeology was discovered.
