Introduction

Timsbury Lake, Romsey, Hampshire (OASIS id: wessexar1-90071)

Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Morgan Sindall to undertake an archaeological watching brief during ground works on land at Timsbury Lake, Romsey, Hampshire, centred on National Grid Reference (NGR) 435660 124150. The proposed works included the widening of an existing access road, stripping of land for the construction of lake-side structures, removal of bunds and the cutting of a new section of canal within the existing lake system. The watching brief was undertaken in the period of early September to late October 2010 and was carried out during the construction of the new access road, new buildings area and the cutting of the new canal section. No significant archaeological features, deposits or finds were recovered during the course of the fieldwork. The initial stripping identified the natural clay at a relatively shallow depth and all areas had been considerably disturbed by the existing vegetation and previous modern activity within the Site.
