Excavations at Bridge Wharf, Chertsey, 2001-9

HEATHER KNIGHT

A series of archaeological investigations was carried out by Museum of London Archaeology on the site at Bridge Wharf, Chertsey (SY-BRI01) between 2001 and 2009 in advance of redevelopment. In addition, a programme of historic building recording was carried by WA Heritage in 2008. Limited evidence was found of later prehistoric and medieval occupation. A revetted channel shows an increase in activity during the late 16th to 17th centuries, and a post-medieval wall and garden features may relate to buildings shown on Rocque's map of 1762. A sawpit, redeposited 19th/20th century boat timbers and a 20th century slipway reflect the later use of the site for boat building, for which considerable documentary evidence survives. In the 20th century, land on the western side of Bridge Wharf was used for the production of armoured vehicles.
