On the 26th to the 27th February 2013, Oxford Archaeology East carried out an archaeological watching brief at 24 London Road, King's Lynn (TF 66259 19492). The monitoring was carried out during the excavation of a new pumping station and rising main.
The watching brief did not uncover anything of archaeological significance. The 3m by 3m trench for the pumping station revealed layers of modern make up to a depth of approximately 1.1m below present ground level. Sealed (and potentially truncated) beneath this was a layer of Victorian topsoil, approximately 0.2m in thickness, which contained fragments of white glazed porcelain, brick and oyster shell. This came straight down onto natural silts and clays.
