Documentary and surface survey was carried out by the OAU in advance of construction of an access road for a landfill site at Calvert. The work was commissioned by Shanks and McEwan (Southern) Ltd. The road runs from A41, adjacent to the former Akeman Street station in Wotton Underwood parish, to Calvert. It is intended to be a temporary feature. Construction would for the most part involve relatively superficial ground disturbance, hence archaeological concern was mainly with surface features which might be impacted by the construction process. It was already envisaged that limited lengths of the route might be constructed entirely above ground (on geotextile) in archaeologically sensitive areas. Most of the sites of potential archaeological interest on and near the route lay in the parish of Quainton, but surface survival was shown to be poor, except in the vicinity of what was thought to be a possible mill pond (the Pond Bay), the earthworks of which were surveyed. It is recommended that the road be routed to avoid this site.
