Between the August and October 2013 OA East carried out an archaeological watching brief on the second phase of water main replacement between Westbury and Bufflers Holt SP 5990 3674 – SP 6413 3602.
The first phase of work was completed in 2009. An archaeological evaluation and excavation were carried out by Oxford Archaeology East (report no.1119) in which an Iron age settlement and modern agricultural features and deposits were noted.
The second phase of monitoring was undertaken during during the removal of topsoil from the easement of the pipe line and also during the trenching process in advance of the pipe laying. Only sporadic evidence of archaeological activity was noted , this was in the form of post medieval ditches and drainage features. Small sherds of Roman and medieval pottery were recorded close to the brook to the east of Westbury but this deposition is thought to be due to colluvial activity.
