Poyle House Slough Berkshire

Norton, Andrew and McAlley, Rowan Poyle House Slough Berkshire. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




Between April 2009 and June 2011 Oxford Archaeology South (OAS) carried out an archaeological investigation at Poyle House, Slough, Berks (TQ 030 765). The work was carried out on behalf of Rising Star LLP, in advance of the construction of a new hotel. The work revealed evidence for the footprint for a medieval timber building, possibly the pre-cursor to Poyle House, and contemporary drainage/boundary ditches. Features associated with the post-medieval Poyle House were also recorded, including the late 19th-century ornamental moat and boat house and a revetment wall on the southern edge of the Poyle Channel. The works followed on from an excavation within the footprint of the hotel in 1999, also by OAS (then the Oxford Archaeological Unit), which revealed residual Mesolithic and late Neolithic/early Bronze Age worked flints, medieval structural remains and several medieval and later boundary/drainage ditches.
