Calford Seadon LLP on behalf of Hyde Housing Association commissioned Wessex Archaeology to undertake an archaeological desk-based assessment of land comprising the Waddon Youth Centre, Brightsparks Nursery, Hilton Community Centre and part of the Purley Way Playing Fields in the London Borough of Croydon, hereafter, the Site.
The Site covers an area of c. 0.5 hectares, centred on National Grid Reference (NGR) 531188/ 164370. Outline plans concerning Site development are unknown at the time of writing. This report is prepared to inform the archaeological potential of the Site in advance of any future development of the Site.
A Study Area extending for 750m from the centre of the Site has been considered in order to provide an archaeological and historical context for interpretation. The Site would appear to have been undeveloped until post-1975 when the extant Waddon Youth Centre was constructed. Prior to this the Site formed part of the Purley Playing Fields. Pre-19th century development in the area largely comprised agricultural and garden activity prior to the onset of Victorian suburbanisation. Previous impacts at the Site are limited to the construction of the extant buildings and associated ground level reduction.
