In September 2005, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an
archaeological watching brief at Manor Farm, Buckingham (NGR: SP
699 349. The work was commissioned by CgMs Consulting on behalf of
Bellway Homes and Taylor Woodrow Developments Ltd in advance of a
potential planning application for development of the land.
The watching brief revealed soils typical of modern agricultural
practises, overlying natural deposits. Post-medieval ditches possibly
representing the western 16th century boundary were observed. Two
other ditches representing the remains of ridge and furrow were seen in
test pits in the south west and north west corners of the site. A modern
stone foundation or drain and an area of hard standing were revealed at
the northern end of the site.
