This collection comprises site data (images, reports and GIS) from a series of archaeological evaluations in 2018 on the site of a proposed new housing development at Cricket Field Grove, Crowthorne, Berkshire and on the site of a proposed replacement sports pitch development at Lower Broadmoor Road, Crowthorne, Berkshire.

Between 22nd and 24th January 2018 Oxford Archaeology carried out an evaluation on behalf of Barratt Homes on the site. Five evaluation trenches (numbered 1-6) were excavated within Area A, an existing sports pitch. No archaeological features were present. Between the 22nd and the 24th of May 2018 Oxford Archaeology carried out an evaluation on behalf of Barrett Homes (Area B). Eight evaluation trenches (numbered 7-13) were excavated in the valley of the Butter Stream, which crosses the area of the replacement sports pitch. This area of mixed low-lying pasture and marshy vegetation contained no evidence for archaeological features predating the construction of Broadmoor Hospital. The evaluation revealed modern land drains in all trenches. Trench 7 also contained the remains of a brick drain which was located 20m south of a former laundry and waterworks, built in the late 19th century to service Broadmoor Hospital. The presence of the land drains suggests that a series of strongly magnetic linear features visible on the geophysical survey plot are drainage features connected with canalisation of the Butter Stream in the 1860s to provide a water supply for the hospital laundry and waterworks. The results of trenching in Area A (Cricketfield Grove, Trenches 1-6) and Area B (Lower Broadmoor Road, Trenches 7-13) are reported on separately.
