Summary

A trial trenched evaluation was conducted at 20 Egremont Street, Glemsford, in advance of a future housing development at the site. Archaeological deposits were encountered across the western half of the site area and included three pits and the corner of a possible ditched enclosure. Finds associated with these features included tin-glazed and imported slipware pottery, clay pipes and ceramic building material of likely 17th and 18th century date. The eastern half of the site appears to be heavily truncated, probably caused by the clearance of previous buildings along the street frontage and the construction of the post-war dwelling that occupies the site today.
