Description

This Desktop Assessment has been prepared at the request of O'Neill associates to provide information regarding the archaeological potential of land at Whitehall Grange, Wigginton Road, York. The site comprises a series of interconnecting pasture fields located around a complex of farm buildings. The site lies in an area with some potential to contain archaeological deposits. The surrounding area contains several Roman temporary camps, three of which are Scheduled Monuments. The area has also been shown to contain archaeological remains of prehistoric date, stretching back to at least the Neolithic period. Throughout the medieval and post-medieval periods the site is likely to have comprised open agricultural fields. From the 1930s the site was occupied by initially a civil airfield, which was taken over by the military during WWII. A limited number of airfield structures are still evident on the site.
