Marine Wharf (West)Deptford London

Score, Dave Marine Wharf (West)Deptford London. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




Between November 2011 and July 2015 monitoring of ground works was undertaken by OA on the seven successive phases of the development at Marine Wharf, Deptford. There was no major bulk excavation of significant deposits and monitored works included pile cap excavations, lift pits, crane bases, attenuation tanks and service trenches. The presence across the site of a substantial depth of modern made ground was confirmed and with one exception all of the excavations were within this made ground and had no impact on natural deposits or deposits with potential to contain archaeology. The one exception was a deep excavation for an attenuation tank in the north east part of the site where in this location modern made ground / dump deposits extended to a depth of 4.5m below current ground level where at 0.5m AOD alluvial deposits were seen. No archaeology was present. This served to confirm at least in this location the significant previous truncation which has taken place.
