Summary. Four trenches were excavated in the footprints of proposed new housing on the western side of Panfield Lane. These revealed a modern post-hole and an undated pit in T1 and T3 respectively. T2 and T4 both intercepted ditches aligned roughly parallel with Panfield Lane. These may be parts of a field boundary predating Sandon House, and infilled in the post-medieval period.
