Desk-Based Assessment
Report Number


An desk-based assessment was undertaken as a result of a proposal to extend the Cavenham Heath Quarry. The assessment included an examination of the County Sites and Monuments Record (SMR), a documentary search and a site walkover.

The proposed development area is just above the floodplain of the River Lark and the DBA indicates that it has a high potential for archaeological occupation of all periods which would be destroyed by the development. It would also affect the setting of the Scheduled Ancient Monument (SAM) CAM 001 The Black Ditches.
