Archaeological Evaluation

CFA Archaeology Ltd carried out an archaeological evaluation by way of trial trenching at the proposed development site. In total 4 trenches amounting to 202m2 were excavated which accounted for 6.8% of the total area.

Three archaeological features were discovered and consisted of the remains of two parallel linear ditch features 22m apart and orientated NE-SW. These are interpreted as post-medieval boundary ditches due to the inclusion of modern ceramic at the base of the fills. A single small pit was uncovered adjacent to one of the ditches and is interpreted as a stone hole.

No other archaeological features were identified.
