Abstract:
ECUS Ltd was commissioned to carry out archaeological monitoring of geo-technical test pits at 29 London Road, Brentford centred on NGR TQ 17205 77217. The Site is to be redeveloped for the erection of a five storey building comprising 9 x 2-bedroom flats with associated parking and landscaping (planning application P/2012/3369 and 00707/29/P3 LAG 018/406). Site work was undertaken on 09 August 2013. The monitoring of the two geotechnical pits has indicated that there is an overburden of modern made ground of 0.6m across the Site. The cellar to the former pub will have removed any archaeological remains. However the monitoring activity has revealed the potential for archaeological remains to survive at the southern end of the site. In Test Pit 1 a series of intercutting post-medieval/ modern pits were revealed, and represent refuse pits at the back of the Victorian properties which once fronted onto London Road. In Test Pit 2 a broad ditch over 3.8m wide and 1.2 in depth below current ground level was revealed. Analysis of the pottery indicates a 2nd century AD date. A ditch of similar proportions and with the same distinctive compact yellow sand deposit was identified during rescue excavations on the adjacent site of Northumbria Wharf to the east during the 1970s. It is considered highly likely the ditch in Test Pit 2 is a continuation of this ditch and may mark a property boundary parallel to the Roman Road, presumed to be to the north of the Site.
