An archaeological watching brief was undertaken on the ground reduction for a new dwelling to the rear of 3, The Dell, Skelton, City of York. The monitoring recorded a substantial dump of demolition material from a building dating to the 19th/early 20th century. This demolition material was mixed with more recent construction debris and covered most of the area of the development. This demolition material directly overlay a late 19th early 20th century rubbish dump. The refuse had been dumped directly onto the existing ground surface and no archaeological features were observed across the whole of the site.
