Introduction

Station Approach, Winchester, Hampshire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-310639)

An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology in August and September 2015 at Station Approach, Winchester. Six trenches were excavated.

The Evaluation was able to identify the Oram's Arbour enclosure ditch, which had been projected to run across the southern part of the site along with possible remnants of the associated bank. Other archaeological features identified comprised of two Saxo-Norman/medieval pits, at least two further medieval ditches/cut features and several undated features. Animal bone waste pertaining to onsite butchery being undertaken was identified within the medieval pits.

The archaeology identified was spread across three trenches located within the southern half of the site. Of the remaining three trenches in the northern part of the site, and which lay external to the Oram's Arbour enclosure ditch, two of the trenches were blank and one contained large amounts of modern truncation. No evidence of any internal features associated with or dating to the use of Oram's Arbour were identified. Although evidence of activity dating to the medieval period was identified in the form of pits, ditches and cut features, no evidence of any structural features was revealed.
