A magnetometer survey led by N Cowlard of EEHAS identified a linear anomaly, possibly a ditch, perpendicular to and intersecting the previously recorded east roadside ditch of the Roman road Stane Street (SyAC 101, 214). A number of further linear anomalies were recorded to the south of Stane Street.
Geophysical survey and evaluation led by D Graham of SyAS. Magnetometry revealed an 8m-wide, north--south oriented, straight, double-ditched linear anomaly, various other anomalies and signs of ridge-and-furrow ploughing. A trench across one of the flanking ditches and extending across half the width of the linear anomaly revealed a raised trackway or ‘agger’, although there was no sign of metalling having been present. Probable Late Iron Age/early Roman pottery recovered from the ditch may date the feature but could be residual.
