University of Leicester Archaeological Services carried out archaeological evaluation of a site for proposed development at Cathedral Road, Derby, in February 2004. Evidence for probable medieval garden soils was identified, together with a fragmentary structure of post-medieval or later date. A small dump of 19th century kiln waste, comprising fragments of saggars and biscuit-fired pottery from the Crown Derby Porcelain Company was also recovered. Unfortunately it was not possible to place trenches close to Willow Row or Walker Lane street frontages, and this was where medieval and post-medieval properties might have been expected. (1)
