Summary. Observations were made during the groundworks for the construction of a sun-lounge at 10 Endsleigh Court. The new sun-lounge was built on an area that had been artificially raised above the garden and used for a smaller sun-lounge and a patio with steps. Therefore only concrete, made-up ground and natural sand were encountered. There was not any topsoil remaining within the foundation trenches, which indicates that soil-stripping had taken place in the past, probably at the time of the laying of the patio and steps. If archaeological remains existed on the site, then it is likely that they were removed during this phase; however, there have been no reports of any archaeological finds made from this address.
