Abstract:
Border Archaeology was instructed by Mr Robin Andrews of Amberdusk Ltd. to undertake a programme of archaeological work at the former premises of Davies and Nelson Engineering Ltd, Post Office Lane, Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire. Three evaluation trenches were excavated, one near the front and two at the rear of the factory building. The evaluation revealed a series of Post-Medieval deposits consisting largely of demolition rubble and garden soils, together with limited evidence of domestic activity, such as pottery, clay pipe fragments and oyster shell. Two of the trenches revealed substantial archaeological remains: a possible rear courtyard surface (Trench 1) and a well capstone (Trench 3). Following the evaluation, an excavation was undertaken, the limits of which only partially coincided with the position of the previous evaluation trenches 1 and 3, which had revealed features initially interpreted as a yard surface and well capstone. The restrictive nature of this phase, however, limited the opportunity to confirm these previous interpretations. The excavation encountered were two substantial Post-Medieval features. In the south-western corner of the building, part of a possible rear courtyard surface of c. 18th century date was identified, while the north-western area revealed a feature interpreted as a well covering of similar date. The latter appeared to be associated with a heavily worn yard surface. Owing to the limited nature of the excavation, it was not possible to ascertain whether earlier deposits or features underlay these Post-Medieval structures.
