Oseney Abbey site, at the former Bakery Site, Mill Street, Oxford

Booth, Paul (1994) Oseney Abbey site, at the former Bakery Site, Mill Street, Oxford. Project Report. Oxford Archaeological Unit Ltd. (Unpublished)




An archaeological evaluation within the western part of the precinct of Oseney Abbey produced evidence for a complex and well preserved sequence of buildings relating to the western (river side) range of the outer courts of the abbey. The earliest structural traces were probably of 13th century date. At the S end of the site two buildings perhaps with an industrial function were separated by a narrow paved area. Further N a N-S wall line which can be related to the extant late medieval fragment of the abbey (and was not removed until the 18th century) superseded two earlier structures, the earliest again of 13th century date. Outside these structures to the W was an area used for pit digging.
