Full Description

2015: Evaluation trenching revealed an undated pit and ditch. The pit had characteristics of a late Iron Age storage pit, later used for waste disposal. However, the lack of dating evidence from this feature would be unusual if it was to fall within this category. The ditches alignment and close proximity with the existing boundary would suggest a more recent date, probably post-medieval, however the lack of dating evidence precludes any firm conclusions (S1).
