Full Description

Seven archaeological features were observed during evaluation trenching at Lawn Farm in preparation of the area for gravel extraction. These included three small shallow pits containing charcoal-rich fills, a shallow burnt patch on the surface of the gravel, a gully, a shallow ditch and a possible post-hole. One of the shallow pits contained prehistoric, probably Iron Age, pottery and the fill of the possible post-hole contained a moderate amount of burnt flint. The other features remain undated. The charcoal-rich pits formed a loose cluster towards the centre of the site and could indicate prehistoric activity (S1).
