Description

Site code: WHY14. A geophysical (magnetometer) survey covering approximately 58 hectares was carried out on agricultural land south-east of York where it is proposed to develop a new settlement at Whinthorpe. The survey has identified linear anomalies indicative of recent agricultural activity (ploughing and drainage), and others that locate some (but not all) of the 19th century boundaries shown on early Ordnance Survey mapping. The most numerous anomalies reflect the varying nature of the superficial deposits across the Vale of York. The survey has not identified any anomalies of obvious archaeological potential. Webb A/2014/Whinthorpe, York: Geophysical Survey/Report No 2620.
