Abstract

RSK commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North), on behalf of Cheshire
East Council, to undertake an archaeological watching brief during groundworks
associated with of the refurbishment and redesign of Nantwich Pool, Wall Lane,
Nantwich, Cheshire (NGR SJ 6497 5263). The works included the removal of the
external access ramps or steps, replacement of the existing canopy with an enclosed
entrance/foyer and relocation of the reception desk. The watching brief was required
as a condition to the planning permission but only for the new build elements of the
development rather than the refurbishment, which were positioned to the east of the
present structure. The main aim was to establish the nature of the strata in this area,
with particular reference to the depth at which natural sand and clay occurs, the
presence or absence of the waterlogged/organic deposits seen elsewhere in the town of
Nantwich, and the depth of any modern overburden. The fieldwork was undertaken
over five days, between the 10th and 14th December 2012.
