During November and December 2013 OA conducted a watching brief during drainage repairs adjacent to Old Abingdon Road, Oxford (NGR: Centred at SP 5167 0372). These works included excavations to expose existing drains together with excavations for a new inspection chamber and drainage run. The excavations exposed a previously unknown stone constructed culvert running under the Old Abingdon Road, together with details of the roadway make-up. The exposed section had been heavily disturbed by a series of modern services including water, gas and storm drains, causing it to collapse in places. Although no dating evidence was recovered, its location and details of its construction suggests that it may be associated with the construction of the approaches to the railway bridge in the 1840s.
