In May 2018 Oxford Archaeology undertook a trial trench evaluation on the
site of a proposed residential development at Kings Square, Bitton, South
Gloucestershire. The site is centred on ST 6795 6970.
At the time of the investigation the site enclosed an area of regenerated tree
cover with some older former riverside willow trees. All of the trees had
preservation orders on them limiting the amount of trench excavation
Four trenches were excavated, each consistently revealing modern truncated
or made ground. Aerial photographs chart the modern activity with a 1969
image showing the original line of the River Boyd along with a range of factory
structures within the site boundary. An image from 1980 shows the diverted
route of the River Boyd and the former infilled channel along with a cleared
area of ground.
No archaeological deposits were encountered and the results of the
evaluation indicate that the site has a very low potential for any archaeological
deposits to be present or to survive.
