Summary

The site of a proposed development of seven dwellings, lying in an area of archaeological importance within a historic settlement core and within c. 300m of a substantial Roman and Romano-British settlement to the west and south-west ,was evaluated by trial trenching.

Despite its sensitive street-front location no evidence of medieval occupation was encountered. However, the recording of a single ditch of possible prehistoric date suggests that the site lies within an area of outlying activity associated with the nearby Iron Age/Romano-British settlement.
