Between April 2009 and June 2011 Oxford Archaeology South (OAS) carried out an
archaeological investigation at Poyle House, Slough, Berks (TQ 030 765). The work
was carried out on behalf of Rising Star LLP, in advance of the construction of a
new hotel. The work revealed evidence for the footprint for a medieval timber
building, possibly the pre-cursor to Poyle House, and contemporary
drainage/boundary ditches. Features associated with the post-medieval Poyle
House were also recorded, including the late 19th-century ornamental moat and
boat house and a revetment wall on the southern edge of the Poyle Channel. The
works followed on from an excavation within the footprint of the hotel in 1999, also
by OAS (then the Oxford Archaeological Unit), which revealed residual Mesolithic
and late Neolithic/early Bronze Age worked flints, medieval structural remains and
several medieval and later boundary/drainage ditches.
