Project type: Evaluation by trial-trenching
Significance of the results: neg

Summary. Two trial-trenches were excavated north to south. During the evaluation, no material was recovered which can be associated with possible medieval activity, although it is possible that the modern terracing removed evidence of any earlier activity. All the features found were modern, dating to the 19th or 20th centuries, and appeared to relate to Parsonage Farm, which occupied the site until the last century.
