20th century


Centred, Woking Park and former Westfield Tip, Woking

Two phases of evaluation by S Mounce of WA in in advance of flood protection, landscaping, tip remediation and redevelopment alongside the Hoe Stream. The first phase revealed a significant depth of alluvial deposits, late 19th and early 20th artefacts likely to have been washed up and deposited by the Hoe in a trench closest to the modern path of the stream, but no deposits of archaeological interest. The second phase revealed alluvial layers within all of the trenches, confirming that the site historically lay within the floodplain.

The Dell, Locke King Road, Weybridge

Evaluation by H Knight of MOLA revealed an alluvial or colluvial layer likely to have been deposited through the later prehistoric period, but no features of archaeological interest. An area of hardstanding partially surrounded by a brick wall foundation is likely to have been built in the 20th century, but probably later than the construction of the adjacent Brooklands racing circuit.

9 Abbey Gardens, Chertsey

Trial excavations by I Stuart for HBMC in advance of scheduled monument consent on part of the site of the Chertsey Abbey complex. Four trenches were opened, which revealed that the Black Ditch in this area had been backfilled about 30 years ago with redeposited clay, river gravels, building rubble, modern brick and tyre inner tubes.
