Description

A watching brief was conducted during the excavation of a shaft, its purpose being to allow access to a collapsed section of sewer. Below the modern deposits was a layer of dark loam 1.4 metres in thickness. No datable material was recovered but similar deposits have been noted in this area before and have been seen as a result of medieval agricultural activity. A feature was recorded below this layer and is thought to be a possible ditch or pit base which was Roman in date.
