In June 2019 Oxford Archaeology was commissioned by Willmott Dixon on
behalf of Swindon Borough Council to undertake an archaeological evaluation
at Queens Drive, Swindon. The site comprises approximately 1.4 hectares of
land centered at National Grid Reference SU 16970 83487, on the eastern side
of the A4259 approximately 1.6km to the south-east of Swindon town centre.
The site is proposed as the location for 100 new apartments with associated
landscape and storage.
The evaluation involved the excavation of six trenches, two measuring 20m by
1.8m, and four measuring 15m by 1.8m. The results of the evaluation showed
no significant archaeological remains within the area of investigation. The
northern three trenches, trenches 1, 2 and 6, indicate a high level of modern
disturbance in this half of the site
