Archaeological excavations carried out to assess the archaeological potential along the line of a new trunk road were carried out in August and October of 1990. The trenches located various features, some of which had been seen from air photographs. These included a pair of parallel ditches at least 300 metres long and narrowing towards the east where they are 12 metres apart with in-curving ends. Several possible Romano-British field ditches were also found. Field walking over the site produced some Neolithic flint as well as Medieval and post-medieval material. excavation of the features was very limited, and nothing was found to directly date the long paired ditches although one butt end had a post hole and some charcoal. Tentatively these ditches have been interpreted as a Neolithic cursus.
