Evaluation by J Perry of SAS, for Nayeem Homes, in advance of residential development of the site. Neither of the two trial trenches excavated revealed any signs of occupation earlier than the 18th century, and the virtual absence of domestic rubbish suggests that the site was not occupied until this date.
Watching brief by M Dover of SCAU, for Mr. J Bishop, recorded details of the original appearance of the late 19th century mobilisation centre.
Evaluation by B Whitehead of SoAS revealed only modern features, although a single unstratified broken flint blade was recovered.
Watching brief by I Barnes of SthnAS during sand extraction. No definite archaeological features were identified, although a possible plough scar contained a number of Roman pottery sherds, most of which appeared to come from a single vessel. A limited area of Pleistocene gravels was also identified, as was a buried soil of indeterminate date, although no Palaeolithic artefacts or biological material were noted within these deposits.
