Full Description

An archaeological evaluation was conducted for St Lawrence Hall Farms Ltd ahead of the construction of an Anaerobic Digestor Plant and Broiler Unit. A total of 37 trenches were excavated, producing evidence of a small medieval (probably 13th-century) settlement and a possible prehistoric pit in the north-eastern corner of the development area and a number of broadly north-south aligned field boundaries to the west and south. These ditches are most likely post-medieval field boundaries visible on 19th and 20th century maps that were removed in the later 20th century although may have represented the continuation of field systems with prehistoric origins (S1).
