In advance of a proposed development on this site, four trenches were excavated in the process of evaluating the site for archaeological purposes.Trench 1 produced deposits relating to Roman and Medieval agricultural activity. Trench 2 revealed some structural remains thought to be drainage ditches and dated to the 2nd or 3rd centuries. Within this trench was found a shallow feature of uncertain function and dated by pottery sherds to around 14th -16th centuries. The other trenches proved to be remarkably sterile archaeologically with modern debris overlying the natural clay and gravel levels. NMR Information: NMR Microfilm Index PRN: 7765.
