Archaeology Notes

NT08NE 359 c.089 875

NO 089 875 An evaluation was carried out prior to the redevelopment of the site. Three trenches were excavated along the frontage of the site. All of the deposits identified related to structures that had stood on the frontage of Bruce Street. The rear of the proposed development site was not available for evaluation as a retaining wall prevented access to this area. Therefore a watching brief was carried out on this area during grading works. This only identified remains and debris dating from the 19th century. However a contractor's test pit along the front of the site uncovered a length of stone culvert. It is thought that the culvert may have originated from the Abbey Mill Dam which was formerly located to the N of the site.

Full reports lodged with the NMRS.
