Abstract:
In August and early September 2016 Compass Archaeology undertook an archaeological watching brief during Thames Water replacement works along the length of Blythe Road, West Kensington, in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. The archaeological monitoring took place over the course of three site visits with a total of 20 launch pits and open-cut trenches being recorded in detail to provide an illustrative sample of the underlying stratigraphy and any observed archaeological features. Natural geology was observed in several pits, present from a depth of between 0.40m and 0.86m below present ground levels. Often the natural was overlain by layers of made ground or levelling material, (either crushed red brick or compacted chalk dust and rubble), forming the original road base for the Victorian streets laid out in the mid-19th century. Where natural was not observed the trenches contained deep deposits of mixed silts often containing 19th century pottery. Some of these deposits were shown to be within large, steep sided cuts, interpreted as brickearth quarries, dug from the 17th century and into the 19th century to procure the raw materials used in the local brickmaking trade. Additional archaeological features observed included a brick wall footing, potentially part of the boundary to a 19th century bleaching and dyeing works at the west end of Blythe Road, and a brick-built sewer / drain crossing the southern arm of Blythe Road opposite the Post Office Savings Bank Building at the east end of the watching brief area..
