Description

Site code: YET14. This report describes the results of a single archaeological trial trench evaluation carried out by Pre-Construct Archaeology on Land at York Engineers Triangle (NGR SE 59456 51730) between the 15th and the 17th December 2014. Roundhouse constructed by Thomas Prosser in 1864. This roundhouse consisted of an 18-sided polygon design, with a central turntable and radiating stalls with associated inspection pits. These roundhouses were used to store, maintain, clean and repair railway locomotives. The trench was located the south-western quadrant of RH3, adjacent to the western limit of the site. A 1.60m length of the exterior brick wall of RH3 was exposed at the north-eastern end of the trench with a small area of robbed-out internal floor located to the east of the wall.
