Abstract:
Border Archaeology was commissioned by Huramic Ltd., Salop Street, Bridgnorth, to undertake an archaeological programme of work at a site on the junction of Pound Street and Whitburn Street, Bridgnorth, Shropshire (NGR SO 7133 9312) prior to development. For the purposes of this report, the development site will be referred to as the site of the former tobacco clay pipe factory. The site was last used commercially as a watch factory. During the 19th century, a tobacco clay pipe factory was established on the development of the site. The factory site is clearly indicated on the 1884 Ordnance Survey map. The evaluation pits revealed pits underlying the modern ground surface and foundation deposits. These contained a variety of manufacturing debris- including ash and building debris, slag, saggars, clay pipe muffle and clay pipe fragments- of 19th/20th century date. A series of redeposited soils were dated to the 19th century. An east-west alignment of stones discovered in Trench 1 may be the remains of a 19th century boundary wall. The evaluation revealed no evidence of Medieval activity. The assemblage contained a small quantity of late Post- Medieval pottery and a large amount of clay pipe dating to the 19th and 20th centuries. The pottery does not reflect a high-status site,. In comparison, the clay pipe assemblage is relatively important to this period, due to the well-preserved and large number of clay pipe bowls and stems.
