Abstract

Oxford Archaeology (OA)were commissioned by CgMs Consulting to undertake a three trench evaluation on the site at 1 Abbey Road, Oxford prior to development. The proposed development (planning ref: 15/02512/FUL) involves the demolition of existing buildings at 1 Abbey Road, Oxford and the erection of nine 3-storey, 4-bed dwelling houses along with associated services. Evaluation trenches were excavated to a depth of 1.2m revealing the upper surface of the alluvium of the flood plain. Deposits above this were modern imported bulk materials (mainly gravel) forming a platform which presumably was intended to elevate the property above possible flooding levels prior to construction of a builder’s yard in the late 19th century.
