The evaluation identified five features comprising a single undated gully or small ditch, two medieval probable refuse pits and two larger pits that were likely to have been chalk extraction pits. Due to the excessive depth of the evaluation trench the second quarry pit was summarily investigated and produced an iron nail thought to be medieval in date. The evaluation also determined that the development area had been built up significantly using deposits of post-medieval material, predominantly a clean imported soil (S1).
