Introduction

Gadebridge Park Splash Park, Queensway, Hemel Hempstead. Watching Brief (OASIS ID: heritage1-286185)

In response to advice provided to Dacorum Borough Council (DBC) by the Historic Environment Team (HET) of Hertfordshire County Council, acting as archaeological adviser to the Borough, the Heritage Network was commissioned by DBC to undertake a programme of archaeological monitoring of the groundworks for the construction of a Splash Park at Gadebridge Park, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, HP1 1LS. The installation of the Splash Park was not subject to planning consent. The site lies within Gadebridge Park, which lies on the western edge of Hemel Hempstead old town, approximately 70m to the west of the medieval parish church of St Mary. The development site, centred on NGR TL 05386 07844, is located in the south-eastern corner of the park, 140m to the east of the A4146 road, which runs through the centre of the park. A probable tree bole was encountered in 1 trench. No archaeological features, deposits or finds were encountered during the course of the present investigation and no direct evidence for activity pre-dating the 20th century was noted. No information was gained that could be considered to contribute positively to the research aims for the project, as defined in the approved Project Design.
