Abstract:
In May 2018 and May 2019 ADAS carried out an archaeological watching brief for Western Power Distribution (WPD) during groundworks on land at the substations to the east of Chester Road (Site 1) and Thornhill Road (Site 2) in Sutton Park, Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham (SP 08332 96581 and SP 08552 98103). The works were carried out within the permitted development rights of Western Power Distribution under the Electricity Act 1989, and therefore were not subject to a planning application. The groundworks at both site locations however lie within Sutton Park, a Scheduled Monument and a Grade II Listed Park and Garden which was formerly a Medieval deer park. The course of a Roman road (Ryknild Street) runs through the park and is recorded 75 m to the east of the development areas. Consultation with Historic England by the client indicated that the development had the potential to impact upon unknown buried archaeological remains at the locations of the works. Scheduled Monument Consent from Historic England was granted in April 2018 (references S00190984 and S00189700) that required archaeological monitoring during the groundworks in order to identify, assess and record any unknown archaeological remains. No archaeological features or artefacts were observed or recovered from either Site 1 or 2. The absence of archaeological features recorded during the archaeological monitoring may be attributed to the relatively limited ground impact of the groundworks and due to the impact of previous groundworks in the substation areas. These results indicate that the monitoring methodology used was effective in ensuring that the development resulted in no harm to the historic environment resource. The groundworks for the works were carried out in full compliance with Scheduled Monument Consent (REF: S00190984 and S00189700)
