This site was recorded by the Thames Archaeological Survey and also by the City of London Archaeological Society during the 1990s. Features of interest include several phases of wharf structures located beneath Billingsgate Wharf, the 1819 Custom House gridiron and riverside wall (which includes parish boundary markers and high water marks), the remains of three vessels and an interesting artefactual assemblage including a wide variety of shells relating to the Billingsgate Fishmarket, animal bones, clay pipes and ceramics. Mudlarkers have also reported a number of finds from the site, including four Anglo-Saxon strap ends.
