An archaeological excavation was carried out on land between Lady Lane and Tower Mill Lane, following a previous phase of fieldwalking and evaluation trenching which had identified an area of interest in the south-eastern corner of the development area.

The excavation located an area of early Iron Age occupation, with several post-built structures and a probable small trackway, with hearth debris pits and domestic artefacts such as loom weights and spindle whorls suggesting that the larger post-structures could well have been dwellings, as well a single pit positively identified as being of Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age date. In addition, elements of late post-medieval/modern field boundaries were found across the site.
