Abstract:
Bedford College were granted planning permission by Bedford Borough Council for the erection of a three-storey building to provide a facility for education in the performing arts at Bedford College, 25 Cauldwell Street, Bedford. The groundworks were undertaken to ensure the removal of all sub-surface obstructions prior to the installation of augured piles. Sub-surface deposits comprised geological deposits, a back channel of the river that was enclosed within a culvert and a brick-lined basin that would have been joined, via a channel, to the river. The cut is presumably an artificial channel associated with the provision of a wharf for commercial activity in this part of the town. A large brick-lined basin appeared to have been built as part of the same phase of construction work. This probably functioned as a berth for the loading or unloading of barges, possibly in connection with the work of the timber yard that occupied the site around the basin.
