Full Description

A trial trench evaluation was carried out in advance of residential development. Three trial trenches (with a total evaluated area of c. 112m2). A major boundary feature, thought to indicate the line of the original medieval Green Edge (EYE 057), was recorded crossing the site and extending to the north where a series of ponds and the results of a previous evaluation meant that the boundary’s alignment could be conjectured for further 300m. Four other features were recorded, although these could not be accurately dated. A programme of monitoring was recommended. Possibly east boundary of moat - see 1880s OS map (S1).

Monitoring of the groundworks revealed possible pond features, but recovered no finds (S2).
