Abstract:
Archaeological observation of groundworks forming part of the Midsummer Meadows Leominster mains refurbishment scheme took place between 4th July 2005 and 21st September 2006. Excavations ceased on 30th September 2005 for engineering reasons and resumed on 24th November 2005. Revealed during this programme of observation were: 1/ A post-medieval brick drain with sandstone capping stones located in Green Lane. 2/ A covered drainage channel possibly associated with road improvements carried out in the 18th or early 19th century, which lay beneath the modern road surface at the junction of Green Lane, Oldfields Close and Townsend Court and was of coursed sandstone construction with sandstone capping stones. In addition to this, a pit excavated nearby at the junction of Green Lane and Thomas Court revealed two large unworked sandstone blocks at a depth of c.0.5m. 3/ A brick culvert revealed in a pit located off Worcester Road, which may well have been associated with the construction of the Shrewsbury and Hereford Railway in the 1850s. 4/ A pit containing animal bone and horncores, probably representing waste either from tanning or butchery. This pit was located at Cheaton Close in an area of Leominster known as The Marsh where several individuals were engaged in tanning or related industries during the mid-19th century. The majority of deposits revealed during the engineering works had been disturbed by previous utility activity; however, the archaeological observation programme confirmed that no structures, features or deposits of archaeological significance were damaged during the course of the engineering works.
