Old Riding Stables, Send

Evaluation by R Lambert of SCAU. A small cluster of features including pits, possible tree-throw holes and a gully was revealed in a distinct area adjacent to Send Hill. Three of these contained small quantities of possibly residual prehistoric flint, but little of conclusive dating value. However, a shallow pit and a posthole were found to contain pottery of a Saxon date. The comparative rarity of Saxon features in any context in Surrey renders these discoveries significant and the area worthy of further investigation.

Guides Hall, Grotto Road, Weybridge

Watching brief by R Poulton of SCAU during the excavation of two test pits within the Scheduled Oatlands Palace close to the location of previous investigation in the 1960s. The watching brief did not reveal any finds or features of archaeological interest, but did clarify the depth at which archaeological remains are likely to be present and at risk from developmental impact.
