Between March and April 2012 Oxford Archaeology completed an archaeological
watching brief during the excavation of a service trench for a new electricity cable
along Woolhampton Hill and the Bath Road in Woolhampton, West Berkshire
centred at NGR SU 5730 6680. The watching brief observed evidence for two of the
buildings demolished when the Bath Road was widened in 1931: a brick built
building, possibly the brewery or part of the original Angel Inn, and a second brick
building, probably the east wall of the old Post Office. In both cases only the brickbuilt
foundations survived, with the majority of the floor levels and any associated
occupation layers absent. No evidence for any activity or structures pre-dating the
18th century was observed.
