Between November 2010 and January 2012 Oxford Archaeology carried out an archaeological watching brief at the University Botanic Gardens, High Street, Oxford (centred at SP 5202 0607). During realignment of the pathway within the walled garden the watching brief observed evidence for a sequence of worked soil horizons dating between the 17th and 19th centuries together with the foundations of a 19th century greenhouse. Outside the west wall of the garden, on the site of the new compost bins adjacent to Rose Lane, deep deposits of made ground dating to the 18th and 19th centuries together with demolition debris possibly associated with the boundary walls and house shown on the Loggan map of 1675 were observed. No deposits or structures pre-dating the 17th century were encountered during the course of the watching brief.
