Full Description

An archaeological evaluation and a continuous monitoring carried out during the construction of a carpark revealed a network of Iron Age ditches. It appears that these ditches form a series of enclosures that align northwest to southeast before turning northeast with entrances facing to the south. Some moderately large pits were uncovered, which may also have been Iron Age but this dating could not be confirmed. Iron Age pottery, a triangular loomweight and a fired clay slingshot, Roman pottery and Post Medieval pottery were recovered from the site (S1).
