7-15 Fleet Street, London

Ford, Ben 7-15 Fleet Street, London. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




The OAU carried out a field evaluation at 7-15 Fleet Street, London on behalf of Wallace Special Projects. The evaluation consisted of three small trenches excavated through the floors of the basements at the above location. It revealed Thames terrace gravels at a depth of 10.25m OD, overlain by various depths of sterile made ground. Overlaying the made ground were the remains of 18th-19th century structures comprising a short stretch of wall orientated north-south, and a soak-away. The stretch of wall is located on a previous property boundary that may have its origins in the original property boundaries of the burhgage plots established along Fleet Street in the medieval period. Evidence for the demolition of these structures was recorded. The main structural foundations of the present extant buildings were observed to completely truncate (in the specific areas where they exist) all previous remains.
