Oxford Archaeology were appointed by Charterhouse Strategic Land to
undertake an archaeological evaluation at Perrybrook, Shurdington Road,
Brockworth, Gloucestershire, in support of a planning application.
The site is known to be the location of one of 32 Second World War barrage
balloons sites located to the east of Gloucester, placed to protect the Gloster
Aircraft Company (GAC) manufacturing complex and factory at Brockworth
The evaluation identified an anchoring point and two tethering points for a
barrage balloon. The points had been broken out sometime after the end of
the war to at least ground level, when the land was returned to agricultural
use, and survive as fragmented concrete and bricks within shallow pits. No
other archaeological features were identified during the works.
The evaluation was conducted over the course of three days, from the 21st- 23rd October 2020.
