Not recorded.



Archaeological monitoring was carried out during the topsoil stripping of the easement and pipe trenching. Much of the easement was not excavated to an archaeological level due to the thickness of the topsoil. The formation level was c.0.3m in depth and the topsoil coverage was c.0.4m in depth. The pipe trench was 0.25m wide and a varied depth of 1.2-1.6m. Due to the limited view that a pipe cut of this width gives it is uncertain that any archaeological features were positively identified although there were four possible linear features recorded.
