Abstract:
Southampton City Council Archaeology Unit carried out an archaeological watching brief at the former Guardsman public house, 129 Fratton Road, Portsmouth on behalf of their clients, Stephen Walsh Developments. The site is within Portsmouth local area of archaeological importance 3. This area is a long north-south strip along Fratton Road covering the area of the medieval settlements of Fratton at its south end and Buckland/Kingston at its north. The area is defined principally as one of importance for medieval and post-medieval archaeology. A grade II timber-framed house stood at the north end of the street frontage. It was probably of 17th century date and may originally have been the south end of a lobby entrance house. In the 18th century a brick-built cottage was built against the south end of the earlier house. At some stage, probably by 1785, the two were formed into a single property, and doors were cut through the intervening wall, this may relate to the building becoming a public house, which it certainly was by 1830. In the later 19th century the north end of the original timberframed house was demolished. An archaeological watching brief on groundworks to the south and west of the surviving buildings produced no evidence for activity that pre-dated the houses. The client had previously submitted to the planning authority an illustrated record file of the standing building. The development involved demolishing modern extensions followed by division of the building into two dwelling houses. Further houses were to be constructed to the rear.
