Summary

An evaluation was undertaken to assess the extent of surviving archaeology within the area of a proposed housing development on land east of Station Road, Cotton. The area was believed to be the site of an Anglo-Saxon cemetery discovered during 19th century railway construction.

No evidence of an Anglo-Saxon cemetery or any other significant archaeological features were identified and it must be assumed that either the cemetery extended to the east of the railway, or was entirely within the pit and railway cutting and has consequently been destroyed, or that the supposed location of the cemetery is incorrect.
