Description

A watching brief during mitigation ground works at the site of the former York Gas Works identified natural geological deposits at around 1m below ground level, overlain by an agricultural soil of 18th – 19th century date. This had been disturbed by a clearance and extensive levelling, dumping and waste disposal activity associated with the 19th and 20th century developments of the Gasworks. The site was then extensively levelled and turfed in the later 20th century. No significant archaeological remains were found.
