Full Description

2015: Evaluation trenching revealed a series of six quarry pits and a field system of ditches. The quarry pits were largely absent of finds, although one contained eight sherds of 3rd to 4th century Roman pottery and another contained a fragment of whetstone of possible medieval date. , which tentative dates these features. Therefore, either of these dates could be conceivable for these quarry pits. The field system ditches were orientated on a north-west to south-east alignment. These ditches may correspond to a field boundary marked on the 1840 tithe map (S1).
