In May 2008 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at Osney Mill, Mill Street, Oxford (Centred at NGR: SP 5040 0590). The work was commissioned by W.H. Munsey Ltd in advance of the partial demolition and conversion of existing mill buildings to new dwellings and the conversion of a scheduled monument building to offices (Planning references 03/02502/FUL and 03/02503/CAC). The watching brief revealed extensive 19th century brick foundations, a brick floor sealing an earlier stone cobble floor and details of the internal construction of the 19th-century mill building. The majority of the structures observed date to the 19th century, with only the stone cobbles predating this. No evidence for the continuation of the standing medieval range building was observed.
