The former cattle market site will be closed from next Monday 26th July, for an archaeological evaluation to determine the site’s historical value & to make sure that works can be carried out safely.
The evaluation is required by Malvern Hills District Council to assess whether any further excavation would be needed if Tesco was granted planning permission for a new environmental format store.
A desk study has already been carried out, which established that the site could potentially hold remains dating back to the medieval town, particularly in the western part of the site which would have lain within the medieval town boundary.
A digger will be used to excavate the trenches and remove excess earth to allow archaeologists to excavate the site by hand. The findings will be studied and a report will be submitted to the local planning authority.
Sophie Akokhia, corporate affairs manager for Tesco, said: “This is a very important evaluation which would need to be carried out ahead of any potential development on this site.
“The study is a requirement of Tesco’s planning application but this work also provides a valuable opportunity to investigate Tenbury's historical development. Very little archaeological investigation has been carried out within the town to date and we could have some interesting discoveries to report on.”

Tenbury is an idyllic place to live, but to have the majority of the working population travelling in excess of 50 miles a day, mostly by Car is hardly a sensible and sustainable solution.
