Title Land at Red Lodge, New Earswick
Date/Year 2014


A geophysical survey was carried out by On-Site Archaeology Ltd. at the request of Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust to provide information regarding the archaeological potential of land to the south of Lime Tree Avenue and north of the Folk Hall car park in New Earswick, York. The site comprises Red Lodge , residential flats for people over sixty, New Earswick Folk Hall, swimming pool and library, together with the associated car park, tennis courts and recreation ground. The site is in an area of known archaeological significance as described in desk based assessment prepared by Onsite Archaeology in August 2014. 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. Development of the area did not take place until the early 20th century with the establishment of New Earswick garden village. . The objective of the geophysical survey is to support the archaeological evaluation with noninvasive investigation of near surface soil deposits to establish the likely presence or absence of archaeological features.
