Not recorded.



Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by AEE Renewables UK29 to undertake a programme of archaeological works in advance of the development of a 4.39 MW solar farm. This included the excavation of 35 trial trenches, subsequent mitigation in three locations and a watching brief for a cable trench. The trial trench evaluation and mitigation was undertaken 29 October to 15 November 2013. The watching brief was undertaken on 18 February 2014. The natural geology comprised a light to mid yellowish brown sand with occasional clay and gravel patches, which displayed variations. The topsoil was characterised by a 0.35m deposit of dark brown sandy silt with occasional sub-angular flint and gravel inclusions, and was generally of uniform thickness over the site. This overlay c.0.25m subsoil deposit, typically a mid-brown sandy silt with moderate flint and gravel inclusions. Natural geology was encountered in all trenches, areas of mitigation and watching brief (S1).
