Type and Period (7)
2010: Evaluation by trenching of a c1h proposed agricultural reservoir, revealed ditches from at least three periods of field system. While the number of finds recovered was very low a definite Post medieval and probable later prehistoric and medieval phases of activity were identified. Environmental evidence was also sparse but did support pre-Saxon activity in the area. The only non-ditch type feature was a slot or trench with possible post settings in its base; this feature is undated and it is uncertain whether it represents another element in a land division system or part of a structure (S2).
2011: An area of 0.77ha was stripped for an excavation on land at Hall Farm, Westley prior to the construction of a reservoir. The excavation identified a line of circular pits dating to the Middle Iron Age, portions of a Roman field system, a Late Saxon building and post-medieval ditches (S1).
