Full Description

Of a total of 15 trenches excavated in August and September 2001, prior to the construction of a flood barrier wall, two trenches revealed masonry rubble spreads and associated bracing timbers beneath deep riverine deposits. Although difficult to date, these structures were thought likely to have been associated with 19th and/or 20th century attempts at consolidation of the river bank, and possibly also with the provision of wharfage. Some of the masonry consisted of substantial dressed sandstone blocks thought to derive from the demolition of the medieval stone bridge (see SMR 20302). One of the trenches also contained a soundly built timber drain structure, presumably associated with (unknown) structures located on the northern bank of the Dove. The features indicate that the river bank was once positioned considerably further north than its present day location (1)
