Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned in November 2009 to carry out a programme of historic buildings recording of a complex of buildings behind the Alma Tavern on Old York Rd, Wandsworth prior to demolition and development of the site. Oxford Archaeology undertook a desk-based archaeological assessment of the site in October 2009, which identified that there are buildings on the site of moderate local interest which will be demolished in the current project. These buildings principally comprise surviving elements of the former Winstanley metal works. The Alma Tavern is recorded as having been built in 1866 along with the Alma Road and Alma cottages and was bought by Young's Brewery in 1883. Winstanley metal works, a typical late Victorian industrial building, was built sometime before 1885 and there was commercial activity on the site throughout the late 19th and 20th centuries. These activities included a van proprietor, builders, motor engineers and a smith's yard and was taken over by Winstanley Metal Fabrications in 1983.
