Alexandra Countryside Investments Ltd is seeking planning permission to construct a hotel and function room suite at 9 Mill Street, Nantwich, Cheshire (centred at SJ 65045 52219). This proposed development is situated on the site of Nantwich Bowling Green, and is adjacent to a Grade II* listed Georgian town house which currently operates as The Residence Restaurant and Bar. The town of Nantwich is known to be the site of significant historic remains, dating from the Roman Period to the present day, and has been included in the Cheshire Historic Towns Survey of 2003. The areas of Nantwich to the north and west of Mill Street have been subject to archaeological investigation, which provided evidence of extensive Roman and medieval activity alongside the River Weaver. As a consequence of this, Oxford Archaeology North was commissioned to undertake a programme of archaeological trial trenching on the site of the proposed development. The location of the trial trenches was designed to target areas which will be impacted upon by the construction of the function suite, accommodation block and by landscaping within an area of new car parking adjacent to Water Lode Street. The work was undertaken in July 2011.
