Description

A series of monitoring visits were made in August 2004. Although no stratified archaeological deposits or incised features were encountered the finds recovered from the topsoil suggest that late prehistoric occupation is likely to have taken place within, or close to, the site. Evidence for later activity is sparser, although some fragments of medieval and later brick and tile attest to the kiln sites indicated on the First Edition Ordnance Survey map.
