Between 30th July and 20th August 2013, OA East carried out an archaeological watching brief on land at Watford General Hospital (TL 10878 95475). The monitoring was carried out during a programme of geotechnical investigations. No Archaeological remains were observed during the site investigation. Two of the test pits exposed evidence of walls, one contained a pit, these were modern, of 19th to 20th century date. Two test pits contained evidence of palaeo-deposits and one the remains of a buried soil, each sealed the natural gravel, no features or finds were observed associated with these layers, but they indicate the potential for archaeological survival at these locations.
