Summary. Observations were made during topsoil-stripping for a 0.7km-long Anglian Water pipeline from Chichester Hall to Rawreth. Between 50mm and 400mm of topsoil was stripped, and no finds or features of archaeological significance were exposed. The stripping did not generally reach the subsoil and therefore buried features may not have been exposed. However, there was very little post-medieval pottery and no earlier pottery in the ploughsoil as one would expect if buried features were surviving.
