Not recorded.



On the 5th June 2008 and the 30th January 2009 trenches were excavated to assess the archaeological potential of this site. No features of archaeological interest were observed but thick deposits of between 500-600mm below the present topsoil were recorded and a single abraded, handmade pottery body sherd in a sandy fabric was recovered in a layer under the topsoil. The site is near to an intense concentration of cropmarks recognised from aerial photography. The thickness of deposit could relate to previous episodes of site use, possibly agricultural, and might relate to more than one period.
