Watching Brief (1 April 2008 - 21 June 2008)

NJ 9412 0603 Prior to the widening of Wapping Street an electricity sub-station was moved. Monitoring was

undertaken, 1 April–21 June 2008, as the site is close to a Carmelite friary (DES 1996, 6). Wall foundations of the postmedieval Hadden’s Woollen Manufactory were recorded but no earlier deposits were found. Several trenches dug to relocate electricity cables were also monitored but no significant archaeological deposits were recorded.
