Description

The archaeological potential varies across the PDA. The general potential is low to moderate with some specific areas having a high potential. Historically the majority of the PDA would have been meadows and this means that any earlier archaeology would be well preserved because these areas would not have been damaged by ploughing. Due to no specific development being proposed only general comments can be made about the impact of any development on the archaeological resource and any mitigation that would need to be undertaken. The various areas within the PDA that could be particularly sensitive to development involving ground disturbance are The area immediately around Cockfield Hall, The area identified along the old Erlesway which has the potential to be a focus for earlier settlement, Any activity that could disturb waterlogged material close to the river within the flood zone. The potential Iron Age settlement evidence on the pasture to the east of the A12, The right angle sunken linear feature in lawn to the east of the Hall.
