On the 13th August 2014, OA East carried out archaeological monitoring and recording at Brampton Primary School (TL 52055 27081). The monitoring was carried out during the excavation of a single trench to install an attenuation tank as part of a program of building refurbishment works. A wide, silt filled drainage channel was discovered, aligned north to south. The only datable finds from the channel were two sherds of medieval pottery. However, these may have been residual as a fragment of post-medieval tile and sherd of post-medieval glass were recovered from a subsoil layer which the channel truncated. Therefore the channel may be post-medieval in date and could have linked a village green pond to Brampton Brook, located to the south of the site.
