An archaeological assessment was undertaken in response to plans for road improvement. This work included a detailed documentary, aerial photographic and cartographic search as well as fieldwalking. This area of land has been the focus of much industrial activity and more recently has been intensively ploughed. Some field patterns were found to be the same as the 1860 25 inch OS map. Industrial remains from the last century have also been partially removed by land fill. Early map evidence indicates that the area was once a deer park but no features from this were recovered. An extant parish boundary bank and ditch and some ridge and furrow will be affected by the scheme. [Au(adp)]
