Abstract:
An Archaeological Watching Brief was conducted during groundworks associated with District Mains Replacement works by Thames Water between the 10th February and the 8th March 2012. The works took place along Richmond Road, Twickenham, London Borough of Richmond, from the corner of Sion Road to just before Orleans Road. The upper levels of truncated natural brickearth were encountered at c.700mm below present ground level on the northern side of the street, into which was buried a 36-inch gas main. No archaeological deposits were observed on this side of the street. On the southern side of Richmond Road, from the corner with Sion Road and up to 17.2m further NE, 4 sections of red brick wall were observed in section. These walls survived as little as 250mm below present ground level and survived for up to 8 courses to the base of the trench, built on top of the natural geology, and bonded with a coarse grey mortar. They were identified and dated using historic map regression and brick samples taken. The walls were associated with properties whose frontages once extended into the southern carriageway of the road and were datable to the mid 19th century. They were demolished in the early years of the 20th century, (pre-1914), probably during road widening works. The walls were buried beneath associated demolition rubble rich in crushed brick and mortar. No other archaeological deposits were encountered.
