Evaluation by R King of FA revealed no evidence for deposits pre-dating the late post-medieval period. A tile-rich layer encountered in one trench might represent the backfilling of a post-medieval pond suggested to have been located in the area.
Evaluation by N Wells of FA revealed no finds or features of archaeological significance
Watching brief by A Hood of FA revealed several possible ditches/gullies and two small undated pits or tree-throw holes. The majority of the ditches were on a north-west, south-east/north-east, south-west co-axial alignment, suggesting that they represent the remains of a former ditched field system. There was a general paucity of artefactual material from the ditches, although a single sherd of porcelain pottery from one of the fills could indicate that they date to the later medieval or post-medieval period. Two small sherds of possible Bronze Age pottery were recovered from a subsoil layer.

Watching brief by V Bernardi of FA in the area where a ‘toothed’ wooden artefact had been recovered during evaluation in 2011 did not reveal any finds or features of archaeological interest.
Evaluation by A Hood and D King of FA in advance of the construction of the replacement bridge across the Thames and creation of an associated site compound and flood compensation area to the south-west. The evaluation did not reveal any features of archaeological interest in the area around the bridge, but a 'toothed' wooden artefact was recovered from the interface of the natural gravels and overlying deposits in one of the trenches, and further work is proposed within the area of its discovery.
Ongoing monitoring of the pipe laying by R King of FA has so far not revealed any finds or features of archaeological interest.
Soil stripping, mapping and sampling by D King of FA of a site close to the river Mole proposed for a new games area. The work revealed three linear features and a possible pit cut into the top of an alluvial layer present across the site. The dominating linear feature was up to 9m wide and possibly represented a trackway of medieval or post-medieval date. A stony layer running along its edge pre-dated the feature, and the Saxon pottery sherd contained within this layer may be either residual or date it to that period.
Evaluation by A Hood of FA in advance of residential redevelopment revealed a number of post-medieval drainage ditches, and one definite and one probable pit of early Romano-British date, both of which appeared to be isolated and not part of a nucleus of activity.
