We were delighted to welcome artist Kerry Lemon to our Salisbury office recently to share with her the findings from one of our excavations.
‘I have been commissioned by Studio Response on behalf of Barratt Homes to create a series of public artworks in Laverstock. These will be sited on the residential development Riverdown Park and the new adjoining country park. I am currently on the research phase of the project, learning all about the culture, history and landscape of the site and surrounding area. Part of this research was to meet with Wessex Archaeology and learn more about the fascinating history of the land. I am really inspired after my recent visit and excited for the next stage of the project − huge thanks to everyone at Wessex Archaeology for making my visit so enjoyable!’
The archaeological works primarily focused on two key areas, the Barratt Homes/David Wilson Homes Bishopdown residential development to the north of Pearce Way, through their consultants CgMs Consulting, and the associated Wiltshire Council development of Greentrees Junior School immediately to the west, through their consultants Ridge & Partners LLP.
