Description

Trial trench evaluation prior to the construction of a new classroom block that is to be partially build within an area of playground and carpark and partially within the footprint of the former classroom block. Two trenches were excavated to c0.6m-0.7m deep with post-medieval layers encountered from 0.3m-0.4m deep. The uppermost feature cuts were recorded at c0.55m. The natural was loose, relatively soft chalk with some natural hollows that had become infilled with brownish-orange silty-sand. Overlying the chalk, similar sandy-silt material was recorded as subsoil layer in the northern half of Trench 1 (S1).
