Oxford Archaeology East
8x25m evaluation trenches were excavated, five of which were on areas of concrete hard standing. The concrete was found to be reinforced with two layers of metal wiring, thus making it extremely hard to break through. These areas were thus considered un-viable for trenching, so two of the trenches were moved to different areas and the remaining three were not excavated. The only features uncovered during the works were post-medieval disturbance which was most likely related to the sites previous use in the mid 20th century as a Ministry of Defence Fuel Depot (S1).
