Significance of the results: Neg

Summary. A watching brief was carried out during groundworks for an extension to North Primary School. No finds or features of archaeological significance were recorded. The ground had been raised substantially, and therefore most of what was disturbed consisted of modern made-up layers. Natural ground was not reached, and the contractor's excavations did not extend to a great enough depth to impact any archaeological deposits.
