Summary

A trial trench evaluation was carried out at the above site after the granting of a planning consent for the demolition of the existing property and construction of two new houses on the site, along with associated access and services.

This phase of work was carried out after work had begun on the foundations for the western property, including significant ground reduction/terracing in some areas. In undisturbed areas up to 0.4m of topsoil was present, directly over natural geology. Seven postholes were recorded in a rough line, one providing a single sherd of greyware pottery likely to date to either the Roman or medieval period (late 12th to 14th centuries).
