Wellington (Shropshire)

The watching brief that we started in Wellington in September has now been completed. The site, near Limekiln Lane, was the former home farm of the Old Hall, which itself lies outside of the development area. The surviving farm buildings consist of a 17th century timber framed barn and a fragment of a threshing barn dating to the late 18th century.

General view of the site with the timber-framed barn in the back- ground.

Despite the long history of occupation on the site there was little in the way of archaeological remains. A series of levelling layers represented improvements to the farm yard area, but no datable finds were recovered and unfortunately little new light has been shed on the development of this site.
