Full Description

Monitoring of the soil scrape during the creation of a farm reservoir revealed several sections of ditch. Two of these appear to correspond to anti-glider ditches shown on aerial photographs made in 1945, the third ditch is of similar dimensions and has a similar fill and is probably contemporary. No other finds or features were recognised although the disturbance of the ground caused by the use of box-scrapers for excavation meant that only the most obvious features could be recognised (S1).
