Description

The site was divided into two zones. Zone 1 took in most of the site, and was to have been investigated by a series of 5m wide trenches. However, after discussion on-site some of the proposed trenches were not excavated because of flooding. Zone 2 consisted of the line of the perimeter road. The earliest feature on the site was an Iron-Age or Romano-British ditch. This may be related to an extensive area of enclosures and fields to the south-east, known from cropmarks. A post-medieval ditch and a short length of undated gully were also located. Regularly spaced ridge and furrow extended over the south of the site. In the north of the site there was evidence of ground disturbance resulting from the construction and demolition of the former hospital. Two ditches were identified in this area, but could not be dated.
