Archaeological evaluation in advance of development on land at 21, The Street, Worlington identified a small discrete group of medieval pits, dating from between the 11th and 14th centuries AD, and an infilled pond, which was probably contemporary with the pits, and from which a worked bone socketed point was recovered. Environmental evidence from the lower pond deposits showed that this had lain within managed grassland and evidence from the southern edge of the pond suggests that it may have served as a village amenity, accessed by people and animals. Both the pond and the pits were sealed by deposits of loam and topsoil varying between 0.8 and 1.1m deep. Due to the depth of overburden, the limited extent of the archaeological finds, and the ability to adequately excavate the features within the evaluation, no further work on this site is recommended.
