Jowett, Chris (2005) Paving Replacement, Royal Chelsea Hospital, Chelsea, London. Project Report. Oxford Archaeological Unit Ltd. (Unpublished)




In August 2005, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at Figure Court, the Royal Hospital, Chelsea (NGR TQ 2830 7800). The work was commissioned by CMS Bath Ltd., on behalf of the hospital, in advance of the replacement of the paving dating to 1953, which forms the latest alterations to the South Terrace designed by Wren. The watching brief revealed deposits of 18th-20th century date, a series of recent drainage ditches and a brick lined drainage channel contemporary with East court. Deposits associated with construction work on the terrace were also uncovered.
