Published by Wessex Archaeology
Environ UK Ltd commissioned Wessex Archaeology to undertake an archaeological desk-based assessment of the site of Granite Wharf. It is in the London Borough of Greenwich at NGR 539145 178505 and covers an area of c.4.56 hectares (12 acres).
There is a considerable body of archaeological statute, guidance and policy potentially relevant to this Site, principal amongst which is the DoE’s Planning Policy Guidance 16.
The recorded artefactual finds from prehistory are mainly due to the near locality of the river, with finds washed up along the foreshore and the discovery of a Bronze Age trackway and peat to the east of the Site.
Anglo Saxon activity is also noted within the central Greenwich area to the south through the discovery of a Saxon cemetery on Romney Road and that Greenwich is an Anglo Saxon placename. Later Medieval activity with the Study Area relates to the expansion along the foreshore from Greenwich up to Highbridge Wharf just to the south of the Site. Excavations at Highbridge Wharf have revealed evidence of occupation and activity from the 11th to the 16th centuries. It would appear from later cartographic sources that the Site itself remained marshland throughout this period.
