Abstract

Following proposals by McCarthy and Stone (Developments) Ltd for a residential development on the site of the former Burton Engineering Works, Gordon Road, Bridlington, East Riding of Yorkshire (NGR TA 1729 6780; Planning Reference: DC/04/08194/STPLF/STRAT), Humber Archaeological Partnership (HAP) requested that a programme of archaeological investigation be undertaken to further inform the planning process. The site, covering 0.3ha, lies within an area of high archaeological potential to the rear of High Street in the town’s medieval core and within a wider landscape rich in prehistoric and later remains. Consequently, CgMs Consulting completed a desk-based assessment in October 2004, compiled a Written Scheme of Investigation and, on behalf of McCarthy and Stone (Developments) Ltd, commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to carry out an archaeological evaluation of the site. Due to issues relating to access and the presence of services, the evaluation was undertaken in two phases during July and August 2005. Four evaluation trenches were placed within the proposed development site to determine the presence, date, quality and extent of any sub-surface remains. These trenches rapidly uncovered remains relating to the medieval and later periods, indicating that the wider development site was likely to contain relatively undisturbed archaeological remains close to the current ground surface and thus vulnerable to development.
