Archaeological Evaluation (September 2003)

NS56NW 447 c.503 653

NS 503 653 An evaluation was undertaken in September 2003. Trial trenching concentrated on an area to the S of South Arkleston Farm, where a cropmark had been identified from aerial photographs. Eleven trenches were excavated, covering 1000m². A narrow drainage ditch and a series of furrows were identified. These contained pottery and clay pipe fragments dating to the 18th/19th century. The cropmark itself was not located.
