Calford Seadon LLP on behalf of Hyde Housing Association commissioned Wessex Archaeology to undertake a cultural heritage desk-based assessment of land comprising the former site of Propeller House public house, the Waylands Centre and Redgates and Waddon Schools in the London Borough of Croydon, hereafter, the Site (Areas A and B). The Site covers an area of c. 3 hectares, centred on National Grid Reference (NGR) 531188/164370. Development proposals concerning the Site are currently undisclosed.
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. There is a moderate level of recorded archaeology within the Study Area. Prehistoric and Romano-British activity is recorded at several locations across the Study Area representative of small scale activity rather than occupation, activity includes residual evidence within Area A. On this basis it is considered that there is a low-moderate potential for the recovery of Prehistoric and Romano-British material within the Site footprint. To date there has been little archaeological evidence to quantify medieval activity in the wider locality and as such, it is considered that there is a low potential for the recovery of Medieval remains at the Site. Post-medieval and later activity is proven through evaluation within Area A and through cartographic analysis. There is a high potential for the recovery of Post-medieval and 18th/19th century features, particularly associated with the pre-existing Coldharbour House and associated with deposits previously recorded in Area A.
