Gas Main Replacement Whitchurch-on-Thames, Oxfordshire - Pangbourne, West Berkshire

Sims, Mike Gas Main Replacement Whitchurch-on-Thames, Oxfordshire - Pangbourne, West Berkshire. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




Between July and November 2011, Oxford Archaeology, conducted an archaeological watching brief during the laying of a replacement gas main across the River Thames east of Whitchurch Bridge (NGR: SU 6390 7719 to SU 6365 7676). The watching brief brief observed a sequence of alluvial deposits on either side of the River Thames. No evidence for any activity connected with river traffic was observed. Some evidence for cultivation was observed on the northern bank, but the stratigraphy observed on the southern bank is indicative of flood meadows/ seasonal grazing with some evidence of modern recreational use. No evidence for earlier phases of the bridge construction or ferry traffic was observed.
