Abstract:
Compass Archaeology undertook an evaluation of land to the east of Beddington Farm Road and south of Stirling Way, Croydon, London Borough of Sutton in August 2003. This area has potential for a range of archaeological features and finds, notably those of prehistoric date. Roman remains are also recorded in the locality, although subsequently the area appears to have remained open. Seven trial trenches were investigated, each measuring c. 2m by 12m in plan. The trenches were concentrated within the eastern and northern parts of the site, within areas of proposed development and ground reduction. There were no major archaeological features or finds. The sequence of deposits was broadly similar across the site, with recent made ground overlying a later post medieval reworked soil and a more or less sterile subsoil. natural River Terrace deposits were encountered at a depth of about 0.6m to 0.9m, although in the southeast corner the underlying London Clay outcropped to within 0.3m of the present surface. The evaluation did produce some evidence for prehistoric activity, broadly comparable with other local sites. Two apparently linear features were recorded within the southeast of the site, over 2m wide and with a primary waterlain fill. These features and adjacent soil horizons produced a total of ten struck flints, lacking diagnostic tool types, but likely to be of Mesolithic to Bronze Age date.
