Not recorded.



No archaeological activity was noted, although the presence of a significant spread of peat was confirmed across most of the area at a depth of c. 8m AOD (c. 2m below existing ground levels). The stratigraphy observed during this monitoring generally consisted of between 0.3 and 0.4m of topsoil (mostly removed prior to excavation of the footings) above 0.5m of disturbed subsoil (a mixed mid/dark greyish brown and mid orangy brown sandy silt). Below this was a layer of mid orangey brown silty sand with occasional small subrounded stones and gravels approximately 0.5m deep sitting above a layer of fine grey/white sand c. 0.4m thick.
