Type Magnetometry


A fluxgate gradiometry survey was undertaken on the site of a proposed bungalow to the S of the site of Hatton House. The survey revealed a strong positive magnetic anomaly surrounded by a strong negative magnetic anomaly at the site of the former fountain. The intensity of these anomalies suggests the presence of ferrous material, perhaps an iron band, used in the construction of the fountain. Slightly higher resistance to the north of the fountain is likely to reflect a path rather than the ferrous water pipe entering the fountain from the north or exiting the pool southwards to supply the well and bathhouse.
