Abstract:
Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA) and The Thames Discovery Programme (TDP) were commissioned by Adam Brossler of Jacobs Engineering UK Ltd., on behalf of their client the Environment Agency to undertake an archaeological watching brief at Vaizey's Wharf, Anchor and Hope Lane, Charlton, London Borough of Greenwich, SE7. The investigation took place from the 7th of July to the 9th of August 2011. The watching brief monitored the replacement of the existing river wall which was in a very decayed state; work which impacted upon the remains of earlier, previously recorded, timber river frontages and a concrete possible cranebase. And in particular, examined removed timbers for evidence that they were re-used vessel timbers. The vast majority of the removed timbers from the earliest revetment were merely roughly dressed piles, only one of them appearing to be a re-used nautical timber, although its original function could not be established. This suggests that the structure was built just before the site was used for shipbreaking from c.1856 onwards. The possible cranebase was constructed around four extremely large re-used vessel timbers which had been bolted together. It was not possible to establish the function of two of them, but the other two appeared to be deck beams, probably from a 1st rate ship of the line. Documentary evidence suggests that only a few ships of that size were broken up on the site, suggesting a date range for the building of this structure of between 1875 and 1904/5.
