Battle of Fulford - A Parliamentary Question

Lord Faulkner of Worcester asked Her Majesty's Government:

What steps they will take to prevent the destruction, through inappropriate commercial development, of the site of the Battle of Fulford, held on 20 September 1066. [HL1877]

Lord McIntosh of Haringey: English Heritage, our statutory adviser, is closely monitoring the situation. It will continue to keep the Department for Culture, Media and Sport informed of any developments regarding this site.


In their initial study, the developer said:  " The geographical details that the River was to the right (west) and the Ditch was on the left (east) suggests that the Ditch mentioned may refer to Germany Beck. This theory was adhered to by K Penn who wrote the report on the A64 Outer Ring Road evaluation in 1973.

"Without further field evaluation this issue seems likely to remain unresolved."

That is what the developers said BUT......they still want to bury the site without investigating it.
