Summary

A single trial trench evaluation was carried out in advance of the construction of a proposed earth shelter dwelling. Under deep deposits of likely post-medieval date, two significant archaeological features were encountered at the southern end of the trench. A partly revealed possible footing of flint cobbles and mortar was encountered in the extreme south-east corner of the trench. The footing cut a large irregularly-based feature (possibly a series of ditches) which contained medieval pottery of 13th to 14th century date.
