Between January and March 2006 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archueological watching brief at Hurley Lock and Hurley Village, Berkshire (centered at NGR: SU 827 844). The work was conmmissioned by the Environment Agency in advance of the excavation of a sewer trench linking Hurley Island Ío the existing sewerage system. The watching brief revealed deposits ol l9th century made ground on Hurley Lock Island, deposits of 20th century made ground on Camping Island and layers of demolition debris, probably l6th or 17th century in date, alongside the Old Priory site. A later, inserted, bríck culvert dated to the late l7th or early 18th century was observed running from the old fish ponds, under the footpath and into the priory site. No evidence for structures relating to the priory extending outside the current SAM boundary was observed.
