Bethune Park Primary School, Pickering Road, Kingston Upon Hull: Archaeological Desk-Based Assessment

Vannan, Alastair (2012) Bethune Park Primary School, Pickering Road, Kingston Upon Hull: Archaeological Desk-Based Assessment. Project Report. Oxford Archaeology North. (Submitted)




In December 2011 Capita Symonds commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to undertake a desk-based assessment in advance of detailed design proposals for development at Bethune Park Primary School, off Pickering Road, Kingston Upon Hull (NGR TA 0505 2720). The desk-based assessment was undertaken in order to provide an understanding of the likely impact of the proposed development on heritage assets. Six heritage assets were identified within the study area, as a result of the desk-based assessment and walkover survey, which relate to differing phases in the historical development of the local landscape. These include agriculture during the medieval, or early post-medieval period, represented by ridge and furrow (Site 6), enclosure of the common into fields (field boundary, Site 5), the industrialisation of the fringes of Hull (brick works, Site 3), land drainage (pumping windmill, Site 4), and the provision of amenities for the newly established residential districts (Pickering Road School, Site 2). Due to their ubiquitous occurrence, their poor state of preservation, or their relatively modern dates, most of the sites were not deemed to be of individual significance, apart from the brick works (Site 3) and windmill (Site 4), which are of low local importance, and the ridge and furrow (Site 6), which is of local/borough importance due to its possible medieval date.
