Summary

Non-Technical Summary Bedfordshire County Council has granted planning permission (2005/39) for alterations and an extension to form a new classroom and music rooms at Leighton Middle School. Leighton Middle School lies in an archaeologically sensitive area, at the western end of the historic core of Leighton Buzzard within the town centre Conservation Area. It is bounded by Bridge Street to the north and Church Square to the east. During April 2006 Albion Archaeology carried out a programme of fieldwork on the site of the new classroom to mitigate the archaeological impact of the development. A series of post-medieval/modern remains were recorded within the development area. These consist of land boundaries marked by ditches, walls and (probably) wooden post-built fences. Rubbish pits, cobbled surfaces and a small brick-built structure were also recorded. The development area lies a short distance south of an important post- medieval/modern road. This was lined with houses and business premises making the site of the new classroom an ideal location for backyard activities such as garden plots and the digging of rubbish pits. Apart form a single sherd of residual medieval pottery, no earlier remains were encountered during the works.
