Full Description

2014/2015: Archaeological evaluation in advance of a proposed housing development revealed evidence of Iron Age-Roman occupation. Archaeological remains dating from the earlier prehistoric to the post-medieval were recorded. Most of the remains were Iron Age-Roman but a small assemblage of mostly Neolithic/Early Bronze Age worked flints were found as residual finds in later deposits. Two of the flint pieces could be Mesolithic or Early Neolithic. (S1).
