Watching brief by S Colley of TVAS during the excavation of foundation pads for a replacement building did not reveal any finds or features of archaeological interest.
Final phase of evaluation of this site by N Randall of SCAU revealed three features of potential archaeological interest, none of which could be dated. It is likely this part of the site is beyond the margins of the settlement or occupation area that the evaluation and watching brief by SCAU in 2008 and 2009 appeared to clip.
Evaluation by G Williams of JMHS revealed the edge of an undated palaeochannel or other geomorphological feature, and a post-medieval gully which may be associated with field boundaries on historic maps.
Evaluation by R Humphrey of PCA revealed undated features that are likely to represent periglacial undulations, natural hollows, root boles or bioturbated ground. The subsoil sealing these features contained mid to late 20th century artefacts, suggesting wide spread horizontal truncation across the site.
Watching brief by N Randall of SCAU on the site where the principal discoveries of excavations in 1967, 1973, 1986 and 2003 had been a burial ground and an associated settlement occupied between the 6th and 12th centuries AD. Three of the six construction trenches were located in previously excavated areas, and one trench revealed a linear feature containing prehistoric, Roman and Saxon pottery which is most likely a continuation of a ditch revealed in 1973.
Trial excavation (1977) of a crop mark site by R.J. Poulton for SyAS and DOE located a possible Roman road ditch and earlier features. The finds included possible early Saxon pottery. (146)
Excavation (1976) by K. Crouch for LAMAS and DOE revealed a RB occupation site of late lst/2nd century date, abandoned 3rd century with some reoccupation in the 4th. There was evidence of 5th/6th century Saxon occupation; the site was given over to agriculture from the late Saxon period. (London Archaeol 2, 362-5)
Excavation (1977) by K. Crouch for LAMAS and DOE produced 1st and 2nd
Excavation (1976) by K. Crouch for London and Middlesex Archaeological Society and DOE revealed a RB occupation site, with first and 2nd century timber buildings, a mid 2nd century well and an east-west ditch south of the buildings.
Excavation and fieldwork by S Dyer for Spelthorne Archaeological Field Group in advance of development located Mesolithic flints and possible BA pottery. (169)
