Full Description

Trail trenching evaluation identified evidence of prehistoric activity in the form of two small pits, probably representing the surviving bases of plough-truncated features. A single flint flake recovered from the fill of one of the pits suggests a Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age date. Seven linear ditches were recorded however there was no material to date them. Cartographic evidence suggests that they probably predate the later post-medieval period. Five large amorphous shaped spreads of sandy silts within natural sands are likely to represent fills in natural undulation or solution hollows (S1).
