Abstract:
On the 29th and 30th of May 2012 a sewer connection pit was excavated on the eastern side of Blossom Street in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. The pit was located within the area of the Scheduled Ancient Monument of the Priory and Hospital of St Mary Spital, (LO162). The pit was located in what was thought to have been an orchard and garden within the walled precinct of the Priory and significant finds had been uncovered in excavations on the south side of Folgate Street in the recent past. The pit was dug to a depth of over 2m below present ground level and a potential buried land surface was exposed at the base of the excavation. Directly above this layer had been constructed a N-S aligned wall of probable early-18th century date, present in the east section of the pit. It is believed that the wall may have been a free-standing structure, perhaps enclosing a yard at the rear / side of properties which once stood on the site. The wall had been severely truncated in its upper levels, and was surrounded by a made ground deposit containing frequent crushed CBM material and mortar fragments. The made ground is thought to derive from upcast material created during the mid-18th to 19th century redevelopment of the area associated with the Tillard estate and later industrial encroachment.
