Summary. A 5% trial-trenching evaluation on the site of a proposed reservoir found a single archaeological feature, ie a post-medieval ditch filled with brick rubble. An evaluation in 2011 had located a Roman ditch 100m to the south but, apart from a fragment of Roman tile in T3, there was no sign of intensive Roman-period activity here in 2013.
