Abstract:
Core samples were obtained from nine different oak timbers in the building known as Saunders Wharf, at Hedsor Wharf, in Berkshire. Analysis and dating by dendrochronology reflects the complicated nature of the building, as evidenced by the structural evidence for the re-use of old beams, in that timbers with different felling dates have been found. One timber, reused as a strut, is from a tree that was probably growing as early as the mid-twelfth century. Whilst the exact felling date of this tree cannot be determined because it is missing its outermost rings, it is likely to have been cut some time after ca 1230. Another single timber, re-used as a collar, has felling date estimated to lie in the range 1450 - 75. There is, however, a small group of timbers, principal rafter, purlins, which were felled in 1561. Given that these timbers appear to be primary it is possible that these represent the approximate construction date of the original building as a whole. No other timbers with later felling dates have been identified. It is probable that the timbers here dated represent the building referred to in a document of 1573 which cites a lease of Ralph Hawtrey to Thomas Saunders of a wharf 'called the
