Watching Brief (9 March 2011)

NT 2478 7470 A watching brief was undertaken on 9 March 2011 during groundworks associated with the conversion of offices into flats at the Category B listed building at 3 West Silvermills. Three 1 x 1m test pits and a 6m long by 0.65m wide service trench were excavated. A sequence of modern made ground overlay soft sediments of indeterminate age, recorded at a depth of 0.5–1.0m (the limit of the excavation). A small section of mortared wall was also recorded cut into the soft sediments in test pit 1. The soils could have archaeological potential or mask significant material. However, as the groundworks will not extend below 0.3m deep any archaeological material will be preserved in situ.
