On the 17th and 18th November 2015 Oxford Archaeology carried out a trial trench
evaluation on behalf of Corylus Environmental Limited, comprising six trenches at
Land to the North of Leighton Road, Wingrave, Buckinghamshire.
The trenches confirmed the results of a preceding geophysical survey, indicating
that the area has limited archaeological potential. Archaeological evidence was
confined to the northern part of the site, where a single undated pit and a ditch,
possibly of late Iron Age or Roman date, were found. All trenches, except one,
contained traces of 'ridge and furrow', which are plough-formed earthworks resulting
from long-term medieval and post-medieval open field agriculture. The ridges
survive as visible landscape features in the surrounding fields.
