Abstract:
South Bedfordshire District Council has granted planning permission for land at the Victoria Allotments in Dunstable to be used instead as an extension to the adjacent, existing cemetery. The CAO advised that the proposed development area was archaeologically sensitive. As a result, a condition was attached to the planning permission requiring the implementation of a scheme of archaeological investigation as a consequence of the change of use. In August 2007, Albion Archaeology was commissioned to undertake an archaeological field evaluation (trial trenching) of the site on behalf of Dunstable Town Council. The proposed development area comprises land at the northern end of the Victoria Allotments, immediately south of West Street. A previous archaeological investigation immediately west of the development area revealed the remains of roadside ditches and wheel-ruts, consistent with the continual use of this route-way, now known as West Street. The development area was evaluated using five trenches. These revealed the remains of post-medieval quarrying along the southern side of West Street. Modern made ground used to level the former quarry and evidence of root disturbance were also recorded. The quarrying activity has been attributed to the maintenance of the post-medieval road surface. Such remains are of low archaeological significance.
