Summary. A watching brief on the stripping of a new road line and the installation of services to a new housing development off Deyncourt Gardens revealed nothing of archaeological significance.The development site has been created out of parts of the back gardens to properties on Hall Lane and Courtenay Gardens.The site was generally covered by 0.3m of garden topsoil over a dark yellow or orange clay natural. There were fragments of concrete platforms and walls (from old garden sheds?) at the extreme south end of the development,and modern ceramic land drains were intercepted at several points.
