An archaeological evaluation revealed a concentration of features including the corner of an enclosure ditch or part of a ring ditch, a linear ditch and a group of pit were found in close proximity to suggest a focus to the activity to the north of the sample area, with a low density of dispersed small pits beyond that. Flint and quartz sand-tempered pottery and struck flint suggested an Early Bronze Age date for the features and a presence on the site from the Palaeolithic period.
