Abstract:
Between late October and late November 2011 a watching brief was conducted during underpinning and drainage works during the conversion of the Stables, Manor Farm, Ruislip, HA4 7QL. 4 underpinning pits measuring between 1.85-2m long x 0.95m wide and up to 1.5m deep were observed as was approximately 70m of trenching measuring 0.4m wide by up to 0.7m deep around the perimeter of the stable block. Natural geology of compact, sterile, pale-brown clay was recorded from 650mm below present ground surface. Made ground, 150mm thick, sealed the natural in the southern pits, atop which was a former cobbled surface of large flint nodules, part of which was observed and recorded in plan in the westernmost 4m of trenching to the south of the stables. This yard surface was later buried beneath a further made ground, 180mm thick, and then sealed by the present tarmac pathway. The northern pits and trenching revealed similar natural geology sealed by a buried soil horizon 300mm thick which represented the ground surface prior to an episode of construction and landscaping around the stable block. The buried soil was sealed beneath a redeposited natural containing CBM and mortar from this episode, and a subsequent imported subsoil and modern topsoil. All deposits were associated with the construction of the original 19th century stable block, and with the repair and hard landscaping of the area in the 20th century. No other, earlier, archaeology was observed.
