Abstract

During February and March 2003 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at Abbey Grounds, Abingdon, Oxfordshire (NGR SU 5025 9735). The work was commissioned by Vale of White Horse District Council in advance of restoration of the park pond in the Abbey Grounds. The watching brief revealed a former stream course and a former channel of the river Stert with a rough stone revetting, along the east boundary of the abbey. From September to November 2003 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at Abbey Grounds, Abingdon, Oxfordshire (NGR SU 5025 9735). The work was commissioned by Vale of White Horse District Council in advance of restoration of the Abbey Close Car Park with better drainage, lighting and resurfacing. This was part of the Abbey Grounds Restoration Project. The watching brief generally revealed post-medieval make up and landscaping layers, sealing deposits probably relating to the abbey complex, including stone . walls, garden soils and evidence of possible infilling of the mill stream.
