An archaeological excavation took place at 78 Eden Street, Kingston upon Thames on the site formerly occupied by an 18th century Friends’ Meeting House that had been demolished in 2016, and an associated burial ground from which the burials had been exhumed. The excavation revealed evidence for a single Saxon ditch, as well as medieval ditches and a pit, and the remains of the post-medieval frontage of Eden Street. A small number of undated features was also recorded. The watching brief identified the continuation of the Saxon ditch to the east and a post-medieval well. The watching brief also uncovered the remains of seventeen Quaker burials which, in line with an agreed mitigation strategy, were either excavated under archaeological conditions or exhumed, depending on the date at which they were interred.
