In May 2000 OAU carried out a field evaluation in the back gardens of properties at 2-4 Deerhurst Road, Cricklewood, London Borough of Brent, on behalf of Banner Homes. The evaluation revealed a substantial north-south oriented cut for what was thought to be a moat associated with Mapesbury House, a medieval manor house known to have existed on or near the development site. Stratigraphic evidence was found to support the documentary sources which state that the moat was backfilled in the late 17th century and the manor house rebuilt twice. The demolished remains of late 17th and 18th century buildings were also revealed. A buried soil of possible prehistoric date was also revealed in trench 2. Between October and November 200, OAU also undertook a watching brief which revealed further evidence for 17th and 18th century structures within the strip foundation trenches for the new buildings.
