Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned by Cavendish Homes Limited
(client) through SF Planning Limited (planning consultant) to undertake a trial
trench evaluation ahead of planning submissions for a proposed residential
development of a site off Two Hedges Road, Woodmancote, Gloucestershire.
Sixteen trenches were excavated, some of which were positioned to
investigate linear anomalies recorded by a geophysical magnetometer survey
that preceded this evaluation. No significant archaeological remains were
encountered in the evaluation.
The trenches revealed a field boundary ditch extending from west to east
across the southern part of the site. This boundary is recorded on the Tithe
Map of 1839. Ridge and furrow cultivation earthworks are extant over the site
differing slightly in layout to either side of the ditch. The boundary ditch did
not produce any useful dating evidence. Traces of a former shallow
watercourse were also present alongside the ditch boundary.
The only other archaeological features or remains comprised a single undated
ditch and small pit or ditch terminal dated to the 18th century.
