Monitoring of drainage works at Garth House, Rushey Lock, revealed no
archaeological remains. The reasonably deep sequence of strata observed
during mechanical excavation for a new sewage treatment plant revealed
alluvial deposits overlying gravel. These represent an earlier channel,
predating canalization and construction of the lock. Deposits overlying the
alluvium are likely to relate to building up of the bank subsequent to, or in
association with, construction of the lock.
