Excavation and watching brief by M Collings of WA in advance of flood protection, landscaping, tip remediation and redevelopment alongside the Hoe stream of areas identified as being of potential interest during evaluation of the site in 2010. The excavation confirmed the presence of postholes, gullies and ditches. Owing to the lack of secure archaeological finds, it was possible to date only two ditches: one to the Early-Middle Iron Age and a second to the post-medieval/modern period. It is likely that not all the gullies and ditches are contemporary, but were associated with flood management across this part of the flood plain during different periods. Three postholes further to those revealed during the evaluation were excavated, but contained no dating evidence. Watching briefs in various areas of the site revealed either no finds or features of archaeological interest, or that groundworks were not deep enough to expose archaeological horizons.
