Summary. Observations were made during the groundworks for the construction of an extension to the house and a new garage. No features of archaeological significance were found. The excavations did not extend below modern made-up ground. The small quantity of late Iron Age and Roman pottery from the spoil heap are expected given the close proximity of the site to Roman and Iron Age industrial and settlement sites.
