Land at Cherwell Street/George Street, Banbury

Cook, Sean Land at Cherwell Street/George Street, Banbury. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




The Oxford Archaeological Unit carried out a field evaluation at a site to the rear of the Cherwell centre on land adjacent to George Street and Cherwell Street on behalf of Healey and Baker. The evaluation consisted of six machine dug trenches each approximately 15m long and 1.6m wide. two of the trenches were located in the car park whilst the remaining four trenches were positioned in the grassed area to the east. The only potentially significant archaeological deposits lie in the area of Trench 2, where two possible features were overlain by dump layers of probable medieval date. The remains of large brick and concrete structures were observed in the grassed area (Trenches 3-6) and these appear to represent the below ground remains of the former brewery buildings and terraced houses. The remaining unaffected deposits in this area appear to be alluvial in origin, but are undated.
