Repairs to the Castle Mill Stream Wall Paradise Street Oxford

Sims, Mike Repairs to the Castle Mill Stream Wall Paradise Street Oxford. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




In August 2009, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief during repairs to the wall flanking the northern side of Castle Mill Stream adjacent to Paradise Street, Oxford (NGR: SP 5094 0612). The work was commissioned by St Peter’s College during work to dismantle and rebuild part of the castle mill stream wall. The watching brief showed that the standing wall was constructed in at least two phases. While no dating evidence was recovered, the southern part is probably contemporary with the revetment wall on the southern side of Swan Bridge and Paradise Street and dates to the 18th century while the northern part may date from the period of construction of the prison wall during the mid 19th century
