We conduct archaeological excavations and schemes of archaeological monitoring (watching briefs) as mitigation schemes once planning permission has been granted.
Our excavations are tightly timetabled to facilitate the developer’s programme.
Monitoring schemes are conducted as alternatives, where any archaeological remains encountered during the developer’s groundworks can be recorded as the development takes place.

Meadowcroft was originally built in 1895, on Elwick Road, Hartlepool. As part of the planning process a desk-based assessment and watching brief was conducted prior to development. Historical records provided a background history for the Grade II listed house and surrounding area. This was used as a baseline for the watching brief carried out during the groundworks for new houses on the site. The brick foundations of the glasshouse shown on the 2nd edition Ordnance Survey map of 1896 were found.
