Abstract:
Site observations on the development of a former car park site at Nettles Lane, Frankwell, Shrewsbury, took place between 17th May and 5th June 2006. It was anticipated that the site could contain significant archaeological remains relating to the medieval and later development of the suburb of Frankwell, which came into existence in the 12th century. The programme of observation revealed a series of brick walls and ceramic drains which were probably associated with mid to late 19th century tenement housing, workshops and sheds that occupied the area to the rear of the Frankwell street frontage and are shown on the OS 1st edition and 2nd edition maps of 1887 and 1900 respectively. These buildings were demolished in the 1960s when the existing roadway of Nettles Lane was constructed and the site converted into a car park. Brick rubble material from the demolished buildings was used as a levelling layer across the site. During the topsoil strip and subsequent excavation of foundation trenching, a moderate quantity of ceramic building materials, pottery and clay pipe fragments of 19th century date was encountered in association with the brick walls, drains and other features identified on the site. The programme of archaeological observation confirms no archaeology was damaged or disturbed during the works without being recorded.
