Full Description

2013: Phase 1 Evaluation identified a medieval pit and a number of undated ditches and pits (S2).

2017: Phase 2 evaluation revealed a series of post-medieval and modern features including pits and ditches, mostly of agricultural use. Some pits are likely to have been for sand extraction possibly in the Medieval period. A small assemblage of pottery was recovered from a variety of features, including 1 sherd of Late Bronze Age-Early Iron Age. The medieval pottery suggests low levels of medieval rubbish deposition or manuring. Fragments of late 18th-20th century pottery were also found. Two worked flints were also recovered (S1).
