The field walking survey covered an area of c.60ha and resulted in the recovery of a small quantity of worked flints, along with several sherds of Iron Age, Roman and medieval pottery. However, the bulk of the assemblage comprises Post-medieval material. No distinct scatters of material were identified. The geophysical survey covered a total area of c.74ha with both magnetic susceptibility and magnetometry carried out. The magnetometery identified ridge and furrow cultivation across large areas, confirming medieval and post-medieval farming in the area. Potential Iron Age enclosures were identified to the east of the A1133, along with several possible kilns or ovens on the west of the A1133.
