Wesley Way, High Bentham, North Yorkshire: Archaeological Watching Brief

Clapperton, Kelly (2011) Wesley Way, High Bentham, North Yorkshire: Archaeological Watching Brief. Project Report. Oxford Archaeology North. (Submitted)




Bowman Riley Architects, on behalf of their client Yorkshire Housing Ltd, commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to undertake an archaeological watching brief during groundworks for a residential development. The site concerns land to the west of Wesley Way, on the north-west side of High Bentham (NGR SD 667 696, Fig 1). The proximity of the site to medieval High Bentham, and the presence of archaeology within the local vicinity, meant that planning permission for the construction of 34 houses and flats on the site was granted with a condition that a permanent archaeological presence was to be maintained during the groundworks, and that any archaeological remains within the site were to be investigated and recorded in mitigation of the development.
