Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned by Environmental Dimension
Partnership (EDP), on behalf of Queens Park Rangers Football Club and The
Community Trust (the developers) to undertake a 26 trench evaluation of the
site of a proposed sports ground development at the former Warren Farm
Sports Centre, Southall, in the London Borough of Ealing. The work followed a
geophysical survey that did not identify any obviously significant
archaeological features. The trenching was undertaken as a condition of
planning permission (planning ref: P/2015/2387, condition 8).
The trenches revealed a low-density of ditches and pits from which a small
number of post-medieval finds was recovered. All of the features are
consistent with the documented former agricultural use of the site in the 19th
and early 20th centuries. The alignment of the ditches matches several
agricultural field boundaries marked on the first edition OS map of 1896.
The results are of negligible significance and suggest that there was very little
activity on the site prior to establishment of the sports ground, and none that
pre-dates the documented agricultural use of the site in the post-medieval and
modern period
