A trial trench by M G O'Connell for SCC and DOE located a gently curving flint foundation wall of possibly the 2nd or 3rd century AD. (164)
Excavation by M G O'Connell and R J Poulton for SCC and DOE located only unstratified pottery and no features from an area producing RB pottery found by Ann Watson in fieldwalking near the scheduled bath-house site. A later trench by R J Poulton following geophysical survey also failed to locate any surviving features. (158 and 166)
Continued excavation by J J Chapman and S Dyer for SAFG located further RB ditches.
Excavation by P M Jones revealed evidence of late RB settlement on the opposite bank of the Thames to Staines, alongside the presumed RB bridging point.

Continued excavation by Vivien Ettlinger for SyAS in advance of redevelopment located a second length of V-shaped ditch c 3m wide and 1.5m deep on the possible line of Stane Street. Finds from the overall excavation included large quantities of RB pottery and building material, a brooch, coins of the 2nd to 4th centuries, a bone pin and a bone disc. (181)
