Full Description

An area of c.2.4 hectares was evaluated by trial trenching as a condition of planning permission to construct a farm reservoir. Twenty one trenches were excavated, within which two adjacent early medieval ditches were recorded, as well as a north-south aligned ditch which was marked on the 1st-3rd edition Ordnance Survey map as a field boundary. The only other incised features present were what appeared to be large extraction pits, the deepest of which measured over 2m deep. Another of these pits had a layer of midden material at its base (S1).
