Published by Wessex Archaeology
Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by GL Hearn Limited on behalf of Tesco Stores Ltd to undertake an archaeological evaluation of land proposed for mixed commercial and light industrial development at Grove Farm, Worcester (the Site, centred on NGR 382200 254300).
The Site lies on a gentle slope falling from c. 32m aOD at the western end to c.28m aOD at the eastern end and consists of agricultural land apportionments totalling c.19ha, of which approximately 11ha are proposed for development. Grove Farm, a Grade II Listed Building of eighteenth century date located within a moated enclosure probably dating to the fifteenth century, is located immediately beyond the eastern boundary of the Site. Cartographic analysis indicates that until recently large areas of the Site were set to orchard.
A total of 38 evaluation trenches, representing a 3% sample of the area available for evaluation (c. 6ha), was excavated in the southern two thirds of the proposed development area, in accordance with a Written Scheme of Investigation (WSI) submitted to and approved by the Archaeological Officer for Worcester City Council. The northern third of the Site was unavailable for evaluation as it is currently under a conifer plantation. The evaluation was monitored by the City Archaeological Officer.
