Evaluation by G Trimble of APS (Archaeological Project Services) revealed pits and ditches indicating the presence of an Iron Age domestic settlement within the north-eastern part of the site with the presence of hammerscale in one of the pits providing evidence of ironworking. A subsequent strip, map and record of the area revealed a total of 22 features of archaeological interest. Two main phases of activity were identified encompassing the Early/Middle Iron Age and, to a lesser extent, the 10th–12th centuries. Initial interpretation suggests that the earlier features represent a small Early–Middle Iron Age domestic settlement site where limited ironworking and smithing was taking place. Analysis is currently ongoing with publication anticipated in 2016.
