Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned by PCA Architects to undertake a
watching brief of the site of a proposed extension to an existing residential property
(Dove House), centred on NGR SP 4554 1058. The work was undertaken on 14th
August 2014.
The work revealed the foundations of the current building and boundary wall, and a
series of deposits which had been used to level the area. The small assemblage of
artefacts recovered dates from the 16th century onwards. The original topography
seen in the underlying gravels demonstrated a steeper original gradient, sloping
down from north to south, which had been levelled by the addition of several layers
of soil. No evidence of medieval settlement or associated features were uncovered
during the watching brief.
