Strip, Map & Record and Trench Evaluation was undertaken on behalf of Anglian Water in advance of the construction of a new water pipeline. A 10m wide topsoil strip was completed, revealing the presence of suboil covering approx hald of the stripped area c1750meters squared towards the SE end of the site. A same of c10% of this area was evaluated 174meters squared by the excavation of two trial trenches. The remaining area, upslope to the north-west found to have no subsoil; consequently no further trial trenching was required. 5 1mx1m test pits were excavated at the bottom of the slope. 4 of the test pits were sited approx every 12m between Trench 1 and 2. The 5th test pit was sited beyond Trench 2 (S1).
