Full Description

A trial trench evaluation was carried out in advance of the construction of a new football pitch, clubhouse and associated facilities. 12 trenches (total area 579m2) were excavated, representing approximately 4% of the area of the proposed development. The natural stratum is glacial till. A small, truncated pit in the western part of the site contained a few sherds of Bronze Age pottery, probably from the same vessel. Two ditches in the northern half of the site are undated. Thick, modern deposits of made ground in the central and southern parts of the site demonstrate that it was landscaped extensively when the existing sports field was created (S1).
