Description

WB during installation of swimming pool. An unconsolidated scatter of cobbles and pebbles was observed at 850mm BGL and tentatively interpreted as a surface but it was not particularly coherent. Natural clay was observed at approximately 600mm – 850mm across the trench, overlain by the cobble spread. Above this was subsoil up to 600mm thick which produced a few sherds of abraded Roman pottery. The top soil was up to 300mm thick. Watching brief recorded no trace of the nearby Roman cemetery.
