In July 2012 Oxford Archaeology undertook an archaeological watching brief during re-development work at Iris Court, New Lane Hill, Tilehurst, Berkshire (NGR: SU 673 730). During the current phase of work the groundworks intruded upon the old courtyard of a previous development which had the potential for surviving archaeological stratigraphy.
The watching brief observed that the entire area of the previous development, including the old courtyard, had been heavily disturbed, probably during the construction of the 1970s development, with no stratigraphy pre-dating the 20th century surviving above the terrace gravel.
A possible palaeo-channel was recorded within the surface of the terrace gravels, but no finds or environmental material were observed.
