A full suite of geotechnical investigations, windowless samples, boreholes, test pits and CPTU starter pits, were monitored under archaeological watching brief conditions. In addition a further 5 archaeological windowless samples and one archaeological test pit were excavated. The results revealed that significant landscaping has taken place across the site since the early 19th century. Although in some places this had truncated and/or removed the earlier archaeological sequence, over most of the site the previous ground levels were buried and preserved. As the buried landscape is so well preserved it was possible to correlate the buried topography with early mapping which pre-dates much of the disturbance associated with the railways. In addition other hollows, ponds, or possibly early post-glacial features were identified.
