Abstract

Oxford Archaeology East was commissioned by Parkside Real Estate Ltd to undertake a desk-based assessment of land at 30 Parkside, Wimbledon. The aim of the assessment was to define the archaeological potential of the Site. The information will be used by the Greater London Archaeological Advisory Officer to Merton Council to determine the archaeological potential of the site and subsequently the scope of any further archaeological investigation. There is a low to moderate possibility of prehistoric remains surviving on the Site and a moderate possibility of Roman remains. In the Anglo-Saxon, medieval and post-medieval periods the Site is unlikely to have been anything other than marginal heathland and pasture until it was incorporated into the gardens of Wimbledon House sometime between 1800 and 1862. The current house is early 20th century in date and, while not Listed, there are several Listed Buildings within sight of the property. Its location within the North Wimbledon Conservation area may also impose certain constraints on any redevelopment.
