Description

A new development is proposed at the site of Hudson House York involving the demolition of the existing building to create new purpose built offices and residential space. Emmaus Consulting Limited, acting on behalf of Palace Capital Developments Limited, appointed LS Archaeology to establish the significance of the sites known buried heritage and the likely impact of the development upon it. This desk-based assessment takes into consideration the possibility of undiscovered archaeological assets and states that there is low potential for evidence from the Prehistoric/Iron Age and moderate potential for Romano-British and medieval periods. There is good potential for archaeological assets to be uncovered from the post medieval - industrial, specifically related to the gardens/ nursery periods (Friars Gardens/ Backhouse) and the 1845 Old Railway Station, York.
