Abstract:
In June 2014 ARCA monitored the drilling of six geotechnical boreholes at the site of Avon Fire Station, Temple Back, Bristol. Two boreholes, ARCA AFS BH1 and ARCA AFS BH2 were drilled through the Quaternary sedimentary sequence into the bedrock (maximum depth 20-25m), whilst the four other boreholes were drilled to maximum depths of 4-5m below ground level (BGL). MMG bedrock was encountered in the base of the two deep boreholes and was overlain by Pleistocene fluvial gravels of the Avon Formation. The Avon Fm was in turn overlain by strata of the Holocene Wentlooge Formation: first by a series of laminated fine sands (most likely deposited on a point bar in the inner bend of a meander of the Avon), and then by fine-grained alluvial/intertidal sediments. Deposits of possible archaeological interest, up to 9.60m thick, which may represent the remains of one or more phase of structural masonry were encountered between +1.19 and +8.09m OD in BH2. Proto-urban deposits were encountered between +6.70 and +7.12m OD in BH8.
