Abstract

In October 2010 Oxford Archaeology East undertook a desk-based assessment to examine the available historical and archaeological resources relating to a plot of land at the site of the County Arms public house, Isleworth, Greater London (centred on TQ 14930 75310). The work was commissioned by Hill Partnerships Ltd before a planning application had been submitted. The aim of the assessment was to define the archaeological potential of the site in advance of potential redevelopment. The desk-based assessment will be used to determine whether an archaeological evaluation of the area is required. The site is located in part of the former Medieval village of Worton in the parish of Isleworth. Only one archaeological investigation has been carried out within 500m of the site and this uncovered post-Medieval remains. It is likely that the footings of post-Medieval farm buildings and associated structures and features will be present. Archaeology from earlier periods may be present but due to later disturbances is likely to be residual in nature. There is a slight possibility of Bronze Age or Roman deposits surviving on the site whilst the probability of Medieval remains surviving is moderate. It is likely that whatever deposits do survive have been truncated by later activity particularly the post-Medieval farm buildings and ponds.
