Between July and November 2011, Oxford Archaeology, conducted an
archaeological watching brief during the laying of a replacement gas main across
the River Thames east of Whitchurch Bridge (NGR: SU 6390 7719 to SU 6365
The watching brief brief observed a sequence of alluvial deposits on either side of
the River Thames. No evidence for any activity connected with river traffic was
observed. Some evidence for cultivation was observed on the northern bank, but the
stratigraphy observed on the southern bank is indicative of flood meadows/
seasonal grazing with some evidence of modern recreational use. No evidence for
earlier phases of the bridge construction or ferry traffic was observed.
