Evaluation by W Boismier and I Meadows of Andrew Josephs Associates across an area of possible flint scatters recorded during previous fieldwalking (SyAC 97, 208) and located on the terrace edge of a small stream valley. The stratigraphy recorded in all trenches comprised a plough-soil above post-glacial alluvial clay and Cretaceous Gault Formation clay and pebbly sand deposits. Worked flint artefacts were only recovered from the plough-soil with no artefacts, features or deposits found cut into or within the alluvial sediments underlying it.
Strip, map and record excavation and watching brief by S Westall of AOC revealed a layer of loose, light brown sand, 0.13–0.24m thick, containing a large quantity of worked Mesolithic flints; none were in situ, having been deposited through colluvial or fluvial activity. Two ditches of Roman or possibly medieval date and a Saxon pit were also recorded.
