In October 2002 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at the new Community Hospital site near Newbury, West Berkshire (NGR SU 4970 6770). The work was commissioned by Jarvis Construction Ltd. The watching brief was maintained during topsoil stripping and groundworks for new roads and car parking and followed two previous strip and record exercises by OA on the site of the development. These had revealed a late Iron Age/early Roman enclosure site. The watching brief revealed a number of linear features dating to the early Roman and post-medieval period. In general formation levels were above the level of archaeological preservation and few features were identified.
