Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned by Environmental Dimension Partnership (EDP), on behalf of Queens Park Rangers Football Club and The Community Trust (the developers) to undertake a 26 trench evaluation of the site of a proposed sports ground development at the former Warren Farm Sports Centre, Southall, in the London Borough of Ealing. The work followed a geophysical survey that did not identify any obviously significant archaeological features. The trenching was undertaken as a condition of planning permission (planning ref: P/2015/2387, condition 8). The trenches revealed a low-density of ditches and pits from which a small number of post-medieval finds was recovered. All of the features are consistent with the documented former agricultural use of the site in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The alignment of the ditches matches several agricultural field boundaries marked on the first edition OS map of 1896. The results are of negligible significance and suggest that there was very little activity on the site prior to establishment of the sports ground, and none that pre-dates the documented agricultural use of the site in the post-medieval and modern period
