This dataset covers Crossrail archaeology works at Davies Street and Hanover Square London W1, the sites for the Western and Eastern Ticket Halls for the new Bond St station. A desk study, WSIs and results of built heritage and archaeology recording works are included.
The Davies Street excavation revealed a channel infilled with alluvial deposits associated with the ancient Tyburn River valley system and the remains of 18th century stables, St Anselm’s School, St Anselm’s Church and 65 Davies Street, the former British Council HQ, which was demolished ahead of construction for Crossrail. Very few archaeology remains were identified at Hanover Square as the site had been largely truncated by 1960s and 1970s developments.
