Abstract:
Border Archaeology undertook a programme of archaeological observation (watching brief) relating to car park improvements at Attingham Park Shrewsbury, comprising the creation of a road and hard-standing parking spaces and the implementation of a drainage design. The ground works comprised the excavation of two long trenches and 12 herringbone trenches which were dug simultaneously. Plastic drainage pipes and associated terram were inserted in the trenches as soon as they were dug and immediately backfilled with pea gravel. A further trench was excavated through the woodland margin to the east of the car park to connect with an existing pond. Again, a plastic drainage pipe and associated terram were inserted in the trenches backfilled with pea gravel. None of the trenches revealed any significant archaeological features or deposits. Modern disturbance in the form of tarmac sub base deposits and associated terram were found across the car park area. A quantity of ceramic drain fragments of modern date was recovered from the topsoil in this area; however no evidence for cut features associated with these modern drains was visible within the trenching. No other finds were recovered from this area. The storm drain trench extending east from the car park towards an existing pond was similarly devoid of archaeological features and deposits, consisting of natural soils overlain by topsoil and modern made-ground deposits. It is thus confirmed that no archaeological structures, features or deposits were affected by the ground works.
