Tottenham Court Road Station (Crossrail XRX10)

During 2010 to 2012, Oxford Archaeology, in partnership with Ramboll (OA Ramboll, Crossrail contract C254) undertook an archaeological watching brief at Tottenham Court Road Station London, on behalf of Crossrail. A post medieval brick clamp and post medieval road surfaces were revealed. During June and July 2010, Oxford Archaeology/Gifford (OAG) conducted out a test pit evaluation at Tottenham Court Road Western Ticket Hall in London. The fieldwork was undertaken on behalf of Crossrail in advance of demolition of a number of buildings and the planned construction of a Western Ticket Hall for Crossrail within the area. The evaluation revealed extensive quarrying of the site dating to the late 17th - early 18th century. In one test pit adjacent to Great Chapel Street a Late 17th century brick structure was revealed. Residual Roman pottery in a test pit to the north of Diadem Court may indicate Roman remains in the locality.

During September and October 2010, Oxford Archaeology/Gifford (OAG) carried out a detailed archaeological excavation on a block of land between Great Chapel Street and Dean Street, Westminster, London. The fieldwork was undertaken on behalf of Crossrail on the site of the future Tottenham Court Road Western Ticket Hall. The excavation revealed 17th century quarrying activity, which was subsequently infilled and built over and by the late 17th century on the western side of the site a brick building had been constructed. Associated with the 17th century occupation were numerous deposits, which had then been truncated by later brick 18th- to 20th-century deposits and structures.
