Prior to the granting of planning consent for the extension to Lackford Landfill site, an archaeological survey was undertaken in the threatened area. The first part of the topsil was stripped using a grader and eight trial trenches were then opened, followed by a small excavation area and then a full graded strip to the subsoil.

The works revealed a minimal level of surviving Bronze Age occupation, consisting of a series of small charcoal-filled pits. However the quantity and distribution of the finds suggest the possibility of more extensive occupation in this area.
