Abstract

This archaeological desktop assessment has been commissioned by Hill Residential Ltd. to better define the scope of archaeological interest of a c.22ha site at Brookman’s Park, Hertfordshire.The assessment has shown that – with the possible exception of a group of anti-tank obstacles on Bradmore Lane – there are no recorded heritage assets within the site boundary. Given the lack of previous investigation in thearea, however, this can only be confirmed, and the potential for heritage assets clearly demonstrated, by further archaeological evaluation. The anti tank obstacles – which depending on the exact final location of the site boundary could fall within the Application Area – form part of the nation’s Defence of Britain legacy and are the best surviving example of their type, as such any potential impact on them by the proposed development should be carefully considered.
