On 18th September 2017 Oxford Archaeology East undertook a pre-demolition archaeological evaluation at Manor House, 2 Main Street, Coveney (centered TL 4860 8168). Three trenches were excavated in the existing farmyard and adjacent field. The trenches exposed a series of small, partially truncated 19th century drainage ditches aligned perpendicular to Main Road, two of which contained intact clay field drain pipes. The trenches also exposed a hollow area of rooting, two modern post-holes and three later field drains. The drainage ditches yielded the stem of a 19th century clay tobacco pipe, a single fragment of white earthenware pottery, and an assortment of post-medieval to modern tile and brick fragments.
