Crane Platform Rushey Weir Bampton Oxfordshire

Leech, Steve Crane Platform Rushey Weir Bampton Oxfordshire. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




Between the 8th and 14th of May 2012, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological Strip, Map and Sample (SMS) at Rushey Weir, Oxfordshire (NGR SP 3227 0003). The work was commissioned by Atkins Limited on behalf of the Environment Agency in advance of the upgrading of the existing paddle and rymer weir facility. The SMS revealed that the larger NE part of the area had been previously disturbed by weir construction. The SW extent of the site revealed two curvilinear ditches. These ditches were both of post-medieval date and one was part of a 'D' shaped field boundary, still partially in use today and the other a probable enclosure adjacent to the river.
