Oxford Archaeology undertook an archaeological trial trench evaluation of land
at Victor Barns off Northampton Road, Brixworth, Northamptonshire between
12th-15th December 2017. The site is centred on NGR SP 7667 6911.
A total of 13 trial trenches were excavated revealing a single linear ditch aligned
NW-SE and three or four probable quarries. The upper fills of the quarries
produced a small range of artefacts dating from the 19th century. No datable
material was encountered within the ditch although this is aligned parallel to
one shown on the 1st edition OS map. It is most likely that the ditch was a former
boundary related to the historic field arrangement.
The evaluation did not produce any evidence for activity at the site predating
the post-medieval period.
